“It is better to keep your head down and keep mastering your craft than to compare yourself to other’s success.”
Impactful words spoken by the strong and talented Chicago-based illustrator, Bianca Xunise. In a world fueled by “likes” and “followers,” it’s hard not to compare yourself to others. But when you’ve got a humble head on your shoulders, and a heart hungry for growth like Bianca, there’s no reason to dig yourself into a hole of self-doubt. Our admiration for the young aritst first sprung after becoming entirely consumed with her comics on Hello Giggles. Over the years, that admiration has greatly surpassed into obsession as we watched her grow, and her illustrations mature with relatable female-centered themes. Recently, we caught up with Bianca to chat more about her struggles of growing in an “instant gratification” industry, and honing her craft in the form of secret comics.
And just like that, January is done! Did this with my Crayola 96 Pack and I loved how it turned out. My goal is to have every month colored and posted by the end of that month. Here’s hoping I can do it!
And of course, thank you to @calmdownmorrissey for the encouragement, the beautiful artwork, and the loving words inside this calendar ♥
