WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE(S) OF ADVICE YOU CAN OFFER STUDENTS THAT YOU WISH THEY HAD TOLD YOU IN ART SCHOOL?
As someone who didn’t go, the best advice I ever received was from my father, and this can be applied to any artist:
Every day you’re not working on your craft, someone else that wants it more is catching up with you. And it’s true. I see a lot of talk, and no shop.
ASSUMING THAT THERE ARE NO SPACE-TIME PARADOX’S INVOLVED… IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME 10 YEARS (KNOWING WHAT YOU KNOW NOW), WHAT WOULD YOU TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF TO DO DIFFERENTLY?
Don’t be scared. Be brave, be yourself, don’t ever succumb to weak people.
WHAT DOES “SUCCESS” MEAN TO YOU AND, WHAT ARE AT LEAST THREE THINGS YOU NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE IT?
Working alongside with my friends, and knowing they’re all fed and happy. To achieve it:
1. Keep my mind on the game, stay focused and on target.
2. Don’t allow negativity to separate or destroy ones hope.
3. Get back to work.
