Here's an awesome post by Jillian Tamaki called Thoughts About Sketchbooks which I revisit when I stare at a blank page in my sketchbook and think WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME.
I went to TCAF last week and had the opportunity to see comic artist Erika Moen who has been an inspiration to me since I was in grade 9 (Weeiird.) And she's still doing it. Plus I got to sit all "behind the booth" with her which totally made me feel special.
I also got to meet Jillian Tamaki in person which was super great! I think I managed to be mostly composed which trust me was difficult. My mantra was something like "pleaseactnormalpleaseactnormalpleaseactnormal". She drew a great picture in my copy of Gilded Lillies.
