to my struggling artist friends:
please watch this and let it soak in.
I found this about a year ago and it was at such a crucial point in my growth as an artist. It was a time where giving up seemed so much easier than trying to bridge the gap between my taste and what I was able to produce. I'm an avid This American Life listener, and I respect Ira Glass so much, so this really pierces my heart and helps me to work hard despite how crappy my work might be at the time.
