We all need a little pick-me-up now and then. Impostor syndrome is real, sometimes we feel like we suck, and we don't always have the most supportive clients. On top of that, sometimes we do work that we don't want to do just to pay the bills. It's rough for an artist sometimes.
Gavin Aung Than, the artist over at Zen Pencils, drew a cartoon about this very topic, using the inspirational words of Bill Watterson. Of course, you'd know Bill better as the man behind Calvin and Hobbes, one of the best comic strips out there. Gavin drew this strip using Bill's style, and the results are not only powerful, but very inspirational. Enjoy.
