Make yourself the artwork.
Picture yourself as an artist. Believe it.
Mine your own past.
Make anything your subject. Nothing is too humble.
Be prepared to learn.
Make artists your friends.
Focus on what you love.
Join a sketch club. Make it social. Just do it.
Use what’s to hand.
Keep drawing. Over and over. Whenever you can.
Find a room of your own.
Study the classics. Make them your own.
When it’s just not working, destroy it.
