It’s easy to romanticize the life of an artist, but the truth is that it’s a very difficult profession to succeed in. The money isn’t always steady, your work is often undervalued, and you’ll have to put up with idiots frequently telling you to “get a real job.” It’s therefore important to encourage and support young artists as much as possible, because if you don’t then it’s very easy for them to lose hope and give up. Check out this comic to see what we mean. It was created by Zen Pencils, who used an inspiring quote by indie film director Kevin Smith to show us just how rewarding encouragement can be.
