Full shownotes: http://yourcreativepush.com/pascal2 In this episode, Pascal discusses: -How he started his "Sketch of the Day" project. -His advice to anyone struggling to do the work every day, to take it one step at a time. -How if you are impatient with your art, it is something that you can work on with your daily practice. -The importance of finishing a drawing, because your brain starts to recognize the beginning, middle, and end of  creating a piece of art, and if you don't finish the piece, you don't recognize those landmarks. -How as you create art and get better, your goals change as you continue to learn more and more. -How many of his less-favorite pieces end up being more popular than the ones he loves the most. -How you can compare yourself to other talented artists, but they might be comparing themselves to you as well. -His advice for people who might be afraid to draw or paint everyday scenes. -A story about the time he watched a duck for 20 minutes. -How when you are younger you want to be someone else, but as you get older you grow to accept who you are. -How hard it is when you are young (or even older) and you are told to “be yourself,” when you don’t know exactly who you are. -The beauty of being able to recognize that you are changing as an artist and a human being. -Being able to let go of things you are good at for the sake of progressing, especially if those things found success. -What it is like for him to get into the “zone,” and how it is like deep-sea diving. -When he gets into a flow state, how it feels as if he is a conduit for something else, and how he is just there to help it along. -The importance of staying physically fit and the relationship that it can have with your art and creativity.Read more »
