I’m a little late to actually post this for Shark Week, but I had some perfect double shark week synchronization going on this year and had to commemorate it with a drawing.

I know I don’t actually post often enough to reblog myself, but in honor of shark week, here’s a drawing from last year. Maybe some of you are experiencing the same misfortune! (this year I’m safe, woo)

This has been something that has been bothering me for the past few years, every time I encounter someone who’s just started as an artist, they put themselves down because they’re intimidated by artists who are more experienced.  Intimidation is something that every artist has (or will) encounter in their lives, and they need to pull through that fear in order to grow as an artist.  Take that intimidation and be inspired about it.  What makes it intimidating?  What makes their work look so unique?  That’s where your learning opportunistic moments will occur, you find those reasons and you create something new out of all that you’ve learned!
I believe that anyone, ANYONE, can become an artist.  It takes dedication and determination, but I promise you that drawing is one of the most rewarding art forms I’ve ever experienced.  You will always learn something new with it, therefore, the fun never stops!

Well said.

I drew this in April after posting a huge, terrifyingly personal coming out letter on social media, and getting an overwhelming wave of love and support in return.  It was an incredible reminder to let myself be open to other people.

I get a lot of emails from illustration students and young cartoonists. Sometimes they ask to interview me for a class assignment, sometimes they’re recent graduates looking for advice on how to transition from art student to professional illustrator/cartoonist. I get emails asking about how I…
