Today is Thanksgiving in the US and this week I was thinking back to an old Sonic the Hedgehog comic strip that I drew as a child. The art itself is what you might expect of a child my age then but people saw the passion I had for drawing and storytelling early on.
I’m thankful that other people saw that passion for creativity and encouraged me to keep going. That creativity would be funneled into a variety of things ranging from writing short stories to skateboarding, and eventually graphic design before coming back to illustration.
What I’m trying to say is be thankful for the people that encourage and nourish your creativity, and to be that person for others in your family and community.
