I'm subscribed to a wonderful online school for artist with an emphasis on children's books called SVS Learn. Jake Parker is one of the teachers and recently posted this video. I've been in the process of making as much art as possible, and this just affirms my effort. Looking back at some work I see a lot of improvement since I decided a year ago to pursue art as my career full time. There have been some bumps in the road, but the commitment is still strong.
If you are an artist or creative I hope this gives you some inspiration to keep going!
