100 Days of Graphic Novels – Day 28
Day 28 of 100 Days of Graphic Novels 📚
Just some cosy morning drawing right before I spill my coffee everywhere! This week is starting off strong, I can’t believe I’ve accomplished so much in so little time! This weekend I attended the CYA Conference online and was so inspired by all of the amazing presenters and Success Stories! I feel like I am on the right path towards accomplishing my goal of making my first graphic novel!
As an Illustrator, I struggle with imposter syndrome all of the time. And as a wannabe author, even more so! My dream is to write and draw a graphic novel, so now I have to get over my imposter syndrome for both illustration AND writing! An important lesson I learned during the workshops this weekend is to just fake it til you make it, and know that everyone started somewhere. The key is to just begin…and keep going!
I hope these little posts help inspire you to keep going, with whatever passion project you are working on!
