There are so many artists on tumblr who can draw amazingly but they struggle every day to make ends meet or to get a foothold in any job, what would you say to them?

First of all I want to hug each and every one of them because I know how it feels to be in that position. Making ends meet in this world is a struggle and is stressful to be on top of. But speaking of this general idea, I just want to address something that I’ve been wanting to talk a little bit about..

This is always a rough subject to tackle because there seems to be this unhealthy mindset that if you don’t 100% dedicate your life to art then it somehow makes you lesser of an artist. If you need to get a day job to take care of the bills, then of course you gotta do what you gotta do. Be smart about the circumstances you are facing and how you’re going about them. If you think that you can make it by being a freelance artist, then dedicate yourself to that and make sure to allocate time and energy and be mindful of your health and how you work. However if you want to do art on the side and pursue a different career as well, then by all means go for it! 

Do what makes you happy and what makes things work for YOU! :) Don’t let the attitude that if you aren’t going for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree for four years and then strictly pursuing jobs in the creative field that it makes you any less of an artist then the person that went to Cal Arts on scholarship and is constantly hopping between different jobs at major studios. It’s not a competition. It’s whether or not you are happy with what you are doing with your career and your life and how you want to dedicate your time, and other people should respect that as well. If the person working at a major studio looks down on you as a lesser artist for working a job in retail and doing what you love on the side because you’re under heavy and difficult circumstances, that just makes them majorly uncool. Everyone’s circumstances are different and it does not give them the right to be pretentious and think that they are more of a person than you are just because they currently hold that job.

I just want people to realize that, as artists, even though we are all competing for jobs, that doesn’t equate to being a bully to people that aren’t quite up to your level yet. Look back on your art from 5-10 years ago and realize that you can’t forget where you’ve come from as a content creator. Realize that the job you got is really a blessing and be humble about it!
