Stumptown was really exhausting. It kind of threw me for a loop. It's always a difficult thing to go speak to professional artists about their work, and about your work and what you can be doing better. I am so inspired by their work, and totally defeated at the same time. It seems impossible that I'll ever get there, and the bad little voice inside my head tells me I'm not working as hard as I could be, or that I'm just not in the right place to be learning what I need to be.
The other little voice punched it in the face, so I'm cool.
