“It’s scary to be a creative person and put yourself out there.”
“Instagram is a very chill and nurturing group of people… compared to Youtube.”
“In this modern culture… everyone is scared to have an opinion. The second you release something artistic or make a statement… not everyone’s gonna dig it. That can take some work to get over.”
“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.” – Cus D’Amato
“It’s not art unless it has the potential to fail.” – Seth Godin
