Why did you pick this picture?
I picked this picture because I feel it offers a strong message.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
The idea for this art came from me noticing other people (including myself at times) comparing themselves to other people and their lives. I realized by doing this it can cause low self-esteem and it creates a lot of unnecessary negative feelings. I felt the need to create something that suggests to that very same person to think differently.
What does this art mean to you?
To me, this artwork means letting go of what other people think of you. It means staying patient and continuing to work towards the life that you desire. It means to focus on you and not what everyone else is doing. To me, this artwork means to be okay with being the best that you can be.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am a motivational illustrative lettering artist born and raised in a town called Waterloo, Iowa. I am passionate about creating unique, innovative artwork that motivates and inspires others to become the greatest version of themselves.
What more can tell us about your art?
I have been creating artwork for about 5 years now and I love it. I love that I can express my opinions in a unique way and I love that other people enjoy it as well. It is a goal of mine to become a full time artist soon and that is what I will be continuing to work towards.
