More wisdom from Caustic. Worth a read. Nothing here that any serious artist of any flavor hasn’t spent a lot of time contemplating, but it is always good to check in and be reminded of these things.
A good pep talk for those who do and a sign post for those who want to do…
Caustic: Doing Stuff is HARD: Putting in the Time:
There's a belief amongst artists that it takes 10 years or 1000 hours working on a craft before you're actually any good at it. That says a couple things to me:
1) Giving up means you're automatically screwed, and
2) Tenacity equals success
Most it means you/I/they have to work your/my/their asses off to succeed in whatever creative world we live in.
