Artist In Ca Who Are motivational
Dont Compare your self to others. When your really hitting rock bottom and you're just losing your self take some time out and go through your own sketchbook. Look at it from beginning to end there's no better comparison than yourself, you'll see all your hard work, I think it's the greatest motivation to see your own progress and it gives you drive like nothing else.
This is all there is for now
