|Image excerpted from Zen Pencils #163 by Gavin Aung Than|
Definitely well-worth reposting an excellent, recent piece by Gavin Aung Than from his Zen Pencils cartoon blog. This one features a quote from Kevin Smith, which is timely for me since I just rewatched Clerks again for the upteenth time. And it certainly has direct bearing on teaching art, as well as being in a creative community where the opportunity to offer + receive encouragement can be as much a part of the process as sitting down at the sketchbook is - for both aspiring talents and established professionals alike.
"Discourage an artist, you get absolutely nothing in return, ever."
