Tips to fellow artists:
Make the things that you are most interested in and bring you joy. When you create things that matter to you, it really shows in the work you put out into the world. Be open to learning new things whether that be through artists you admire, acquiring/strengthening your technological skills, or trying out a medium you've always been curious about. Remember that being creative isn't linear. Progress is different for everybody, so it's really important to reflect on your own journey and decide where you'd like to go from there.
