Is it too late to start over at 22 and pursue art (I've always just studied until now)?
Listen, it is NEVER, EVER too late. I used to struggle with this mentality (and, honestly, it still rears its ugly head sometimes and it’s awful) that you had to achieve a certain level of artistic skill by a certain age but that’s just not true. Art is not a race; there isn’t a wrong time to start and there isn’t a wrong way to do it, and there is no finish line you cross and you’re finally “good enough.” People learn at different speeds, are good at different things, and struggle with different things, but art will be there for you when you’re 95 and it still wouldn’t be too late. So if you want to pursue it, pursue it! Work hard, be patient with yourself, and enjoy the art-making process- put your heart into it and don’t be discouraged. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t, or that it’s too late, including yourself. You got this.
