Working on an art piece is like having a conversation with yourself. You start with a romantic idea and somewhere in the process of transcribing the idea onto a page, your romantic view of the piece starts to get interrupted by the practicality of how to make it work. This can be a very humbling and very challenging moment to get through. I used to think "You have an idea, go make the idea." It's nice when that works out, but it doesn't always happen like that.
When I was a kid, I was constantly drawing. One time I made a mistake on a picture I had been working on all morning, and it really bummed me out. My mom explained that no one knew what the picture was "supposed" to be, and now I have the challenge and the freedom to do what it takes to make that drawing whatever it wanted to be. I remember feeling excited at the thought of a drawing being alive and changing as I work on it. I never forgot that lesson, and to this day I truly believe that any piece of art should be honest and make sense to itself. Fear of "messing it up" is the biggest thing to overcome in any creative endeavor.
