I didn't get that gig.
And it didn't sit well with me. The sketch that I had made remained near my laptop, taunting me. The pencil drawing had so much more life in it...
And I learned something: Trying to be like someone else doesn't work.
For a long time I undersold myself because I didn't think I measured up to others. Well, I don't compare because nobody else draws like me. That's pretty deep, eh? But it's a good way to start a new year, don'tcha think?
