Life Isn’t a Competition

Just finished a little design for my Society6 shop that I’d like to share.

As a designer I follow and enjoy tons of other artists work, and it’s hard sometimes not to look at someone else’s art and compare it to yours. Then get real sad about how talented they are and how you’ll never be as good as them. Well, the truth is that, as sappy as it is, you have to just be proud of what you’re doing and what you’ve done. I have to constantly remind myself of this or else I would just quit doing what I love and make a sad face for infinity.

Life isn’t a competition, enjoy what you have, what you’re good at, and get pleasure out of other people’s talents without making it about how you could improve. But heck, be inspired by other people’s work and keep practicing yours! There’s probably somebody out there getting inspired by you, too!
