I’ve always gravitated as I got older to independent filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Smith. I just dated myself by mentioning those guys. But for me those guys are still great especially Kevin Smith and Robert Rodriguez who have always been motivators to ask people to create and express themselves.
I don’t think she was the only one who said it but I heard a Carrie fisher quote from a friend:
“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.”

As an artist who thinks he has interesting ideas to share, I hope this little drawing will help anyone who needs a little smile on their face to continue on your risky journey you have undertaken.
Robert Rodriguez talked about a book called ART AND FEAR by David Bayles which is on my to read list but when he talked about that book he said something that helped me a lot, I want to transfer it here hoping it would help you. If you are scared it means you are doing the right thing, especially if you are an artist.
And to add to that I don’t believe in luck, I believe in preparation and acting like a professional even before you become one. Which is why I gave myself this challenge to come up with a new drawing, new cartoon I would put online everyday as long as I can. If you are a writer, WRITE, if you are a musician, MAKE MUSIC and if you are a cartoonist, DRAW.
