Choose yourself and keep making art until you can no longer be ignored.

Now, more than ever, attitude is more important than background and productivity is more important than ignorance. This is especially true when it comes to work done on the cutting edge, where answers are still being found.

You’ve heard “no” from too many people. They were mostly wrong. Not wrong about what they wanted; maybe what you have isn’t for them. But you were wrong about what you could do.

Choose yourself and keep making art until you can no longer be ignored.
