I’m sure if I’d have gone with my ideas and believed in them more I’d have done much better, and more importantly I would’ve actually enjoyed myself. I think the most important aspect of any artistic work is that it comes from you. If you want to draw a tree, it’ll turn out a million times better than a tree that you’re told to draw. Every time.

Education is the last place where you pretty much don’t have to give a fuck about what you’re supposed to do. As soon as you get into the “real world” you’ll have a hundred different people telling you to draw a hundred different trees. But whenever you make the time to draw that one tree that is because you want to you’ll notice the difference.

This is my advice to anyone on any kind of art course, phrased better than I ever could put it.
