There are two challenges I face (present tense) in this journey, which are intertwined. One of them is time. The time to work so hard on my creations (because being an artist is much more than the few hours you sit down and ‘draw’) while maintain a full time job to support me and allow me to do this in the first place. The other challenge is the well-established struggle of every single artists out there (shout out to y’all) to be taken seriously and fairly compensated for the work that we do – no, it’s no hobby nor piece of cake. (Cake? Did someone say cake?)
PS. I should mention, I didn’t forget vulnerability – but that’s now gone from a challenge to a strength!
