EPISODE LESSONS:

1. The most important step to becoming a good artist is believing that you can be a good artist.

2. Handlettering is closer to drawing than it is to handwriting so if you’re an artist interesting in learning how to do it, go for it!

3. The fear of making the leap of becoming a full-time independent artist never 100% goes away. So make sure you have your financial affairs in order (make sure you’re making enough money to sustain yourself + accumulate some savings) and any remaining fear might just have to be ignored!
