Wrecked

I remember it was somewhere in August 2016, in Abu Dhabi that I had an epiphany and wanted to have a job that has something to do with illustrations. I was so into it then and the succeeding months after that.

Not long after that, my mind wandered into the realm of making comics and not long after this one my mind wandered into printing illustrations on mugs and selling them online.

I can’t seem to get a fix on what I really want.

Fast forward months from then, Now, I don’t even know if I should keep this up. I’ve been stopping months at a time where I’m supposed to have been making illustrations everyday for 365 days. Compared to a year before where I was so driven, so full of it, by it I probably mean passion.

What’s changed? or  What have  I lost?

It also probably doesn’t help when some of your friends don’t really support what you want because they think it’s really not going to be able to support you financially for the rest of your life.

Those odds pretty much throws hope out the window, Where am I supposed to get it now, when everything seems so hopeless?

I’m so confused

Defeated and broken…

I’m probably just another naive and heart broken fool.

 

NOTE: I guess this would be my 170/365

  1. So I’m slightly under informed about the career opportunities is the field of illustrations. But nonetheless, I’ll let you know something which seems to work for me.
    Make yourself fit for a job that will pay you nicely, not filthy rich, but enough to survive and keep sharpening your skills. It is difficult to have a career in the field of arts but that had been true for decades now.
    As I said before, I’m slightly unfit to give career advice but just hold on. Do not give up on your passion.
    I’ll finish with a quote, the day you do not encounter problems, assume you’re trotting on the wrong path.

      I also know a few people who wants to be in the field of arts or is in that field and has a hard time.

      Maybe im just in denial and cant accept the truth. That as of this time having a career in that field is really difficult
