" I haven't reached the point where I think I'm good at this. that's the drive. i know that its in me to be really good at it. and i think i've come close a few times, but i don't usually look at things i've completed and feel content. Which that means the next thing you start, you go in with that attitude that 'this time, I'm gonna get it right.' it doesnt mean you hate everything you do, but i'm never content. And maybe i never will be but i secretly know that that's what makes you grow." - Jamie Hewlett

True t'ings. Never be content. Bruce Lee, for example, never aimed for goals; he aimed for plateaus. As soon as one was reached, start climbing to the next one.

Exactly how I feel right now...Putting up my own barriers to the point where I'm sabotaging myself into not making anything. I'm not sure if it's just a rut or if I'm being lazy or just not inspired, but I can say that watching this clip helped me get my mind right.

Gotta say, he hit the nail on the head. My
professor always told me the last work you do, shouldn't
be considered your best work. Never become satisfied, always
push forward.

My thoughts exactly. Whatever is ahead of you, you should always aspire to overcome or surpass it. Becoming complacent allows people behind you to catch up. You should always keep improving yourself in order to become the best you can be.

Wow! one of my all-time favorite comic artists! it is interesting to have a look into his personality, never saw him talk or interview before. So humble and down-to-earth.

Thanks for sharing the wisdom!

Wow. The man thinks the same as I do. And I thought I was alone. Just goes to show ya.
But I think it's a great philosophy for improvement, and for avoiding complacency, even if it causes you to be very hard on yourself. It's a strange mix of positivity through negativity. Haha!
Thanks for sharing this, LT.
Cheers!

Not true. That's like saying every person feels the same way. We are all individuals, with unique points of view that occasionally find commonality.

Lol I think all artists feel this way, at least each and every one I have spoken to have felt the same way.

Well, I've met several artists who brim with self-confidence, or who possess over-inflated egos despite their mediocre skills. So, I don't think it's ever wise to paint everyone with the same broad brush.
Besides, logically, if we all felt the same way, there would be little point in posting this Jaime Hewlett piece in the first place, yes?
