I guess every artist has felt that their work isn’t good enough. It’s sad we think this way, but I believe it’s a thing that make us fight even harder for our work.

Whenever you feel this way, look at your oldest work and compare it to your newest. Then ask yourself what you have learnt on your journey this far. Just by looking at older work makes me happy that I have come this far as I have. Sure, I do think ‘what the hell was I doing’ quite often, but it just makes me realise I have developed and have sharper eyes for things. By that I mean that I can critic my own work in a way that isn’t degrading, but constructive. I often question myself what I could have done better and what I would have made different if I could re-take the photo today.

Yes, you’re always your worst critic, no one can bring you down like yourself. Unfortunately it’s true, but I also believe you can be your best critic. Seeing what you need to get better with and how you can develop in your own way. And I know a lot of you, even myself, compare my work with others and wondering why my work isn’t as good. We know it’s not worth thinking like that because we all have our own signature in art. But I believe it’s something we will grow from.

Just wanted to share this, because I do feel this way sometime and I believe it’s nice to know what could make it better.
If you have something you could share about what you do when you’re feeling this way, please share!
