(The Amazing) Shaun Tan’s Advice for a New Illustrator (x)

As long as you are doing something, even if it isn’t successful, you are not wasting your time. The greatest achievement of so much creative work is simply finding time and dedication to do it, especially when it seems difficult and less than enjoyable, particularly as almost every project seems to involve some kind of confidence-wounding crisis. 

(Shaun Tan is, by far, my favourite children’s book illustrator - though it’s a close thing against Maurice Sendak ^^ If you haven’t seen his work, go and google The Rabbits).
