Me as the big bad: “My hunger takes many shapes and forms, from the cold dread of the tomb on a gust of autumn wind..

The bard: yes, but is it a wave or a particle?

Me: roll for initiative.

Magic Mirror

There comes a point where you’ve watched all the art videos, read the all tutorials, attended all the lectures and bought all of the courses/books, afterwards made the to do lists;

this then is the point where you’ve gotta be honest with yourself;

Do you just love studying art? Or do you want to make some awesome art?

Life is long if you know how to use it.

It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. But when it is wasted in heedless luxury and spent on no good activity, we are forced at last by death’s final constraint to realize that it has passed away before we knew it was passing. So it is: we are not given a short life but we make it short, and we are not ill-supplied but wasteful of it… Life is long if you know how to use it.
