Failure. It’s bound to happen.
I don’t care if you’re an electrician trying to be the best at fixing things on your block or a professional seal wrestler (is there such a thing?), you’re going to fail at some point. This is especially true in cartooning.
It can be discouraging when things don’t pan out the way you had hoped. You might feel like throwing your drawing pencil across the room and shouting curse words that would make your mother cry. It’s important to just brush off failures and move on. Then, try, try again and again.

Hope you enjoy!
