That’s depressing–and sadly something that nearly every artist, creative, or entrepreneur has heard at least once. But the passion that we have for our work is crucial to keep pushing forward, and not give up our dreams.
The second side of this work, which takes the mindless criticism of the first and turns it into an argument for art, creativity, passion and industry is both inspiring and valuable. This is a message that more people need to hear. Check out more of her Jasmine Kay’s work here.
