revolveroftheloom replied to your post: do you have any idea how many artists/musicians…

im sorry but the difference between me and everyone else is that I am actually insane and my greatest fear is failure. I accept nothing short from perfection. I was not meant to fail and I will not.

and thats a big problem with trying to be a successful artist. you cant do it unless you fail. unless you are knocked down and told you arent good enough, so that way you can get back up and show that you have the strength to try again. the beatles were rejected from many record companies, star wars was rejected from being made, walt disney was rejected. You have to fail before you succeed. im sure mike mignola was rejected by many many cartoon/comic publisher. and even before he was allowed to do what he wanted and create his own stories, he rose through the ranks. My  main point is, if you arent ready to fail as hard as you can, there is no chance for success. its scary as hell but its the truth.
