Fur, Glasses, Coffee, and Feelings of Failure

This was a fun illustration I did a couple weeks ago. I didn't think it would turn out because I made a couple mistakes (which ended up really loosening me up). Lately, I have been working through my fear of failure in art. In college I was always worried about not finishing a project or making a mistake that would lead to not making deadlines. That mindset really hindered my desire for experimentation and it also made art less relaxing. It is so refreshing to pick up a pencil, pen, or brush and see what happens (and if it is awful the garbage is only a few steps away)!
