This Artcast is about not waiting.
“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
Mark Victor Hansen

Excellent podcast! Thanks again!

Max Lawson said...

I recently decided to start seriously pursuing my dream career after wasting a year of my life waiting because I didn't think I was "good enough", so this artcast really rang true for me. Great advice as always :)

It's funny how you posted this latest podcast during a time when I'm really unsure what choices to make and whether its the right time to persue certain goals. I'm a concept artist for a games company in the UK but my heart is truely in feature animation. I really want to be a character designer and often daydream of working at Pixar (like everyone else right...) Unfortunatley the UK doesn't have the kind of studios that the US has, such as Pixar, Dreamworks ect ect and I really don't know whether to actively pursue trying to get work overseas... I often think I should just try and forget about it and leave it as a pipe dream, but every so often I get the nagging feeling in the back of my mind that I should just throw caution to the wind and see what happens. It's a huge deal moving abroad and I just don't want to wake up in years to come and regret whatever decision I make. Thanks anyway, rant over :D

If you don't do it, that will be your regret in life. if you do do it and it doesn't work the worst that will happen is that you move back home but you will know you tried
If you don't try you can't succeed and you can't fail
Take the risk have no regrets. life is to damn short
Keep in mind that you can send your portfolio to any studio in the world. You don't have to live in that country to see if they will accept you. Maybe pop on over to the states for 3 months, see what happens.

I agree completely with what you're saying, I need to remind myself that I have nothing to lose from just sending my work over and seeing what happens. I have wanted to seriously apply to Pixar for almost a year now, but have always talked myself out of it for numerous reasons (lack of confidence, afraid of rejection, blah blah blah)
Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and throw some drawings together and see what happens, if anything, I would've at least tried :)
Thanks pal, appologies for the lengthy posts, your latest topic really resonated with me. Cheers

Thanks for making artcast. After finishing your schoolism course I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep inspired without your weekly encouragements. But then I discovered your podcasts and now I listen to them every time I feel down about making art. As a result, I'm still learning and drawing if not consistently, even more.
It's great that you keep your presence online beyond the classes you teach so we can always keep learning from you.

Well put Stephen. Inspiring stuff as always. Thanks for the boost!

Justin Rodrigues said...

evan said...

I just started listening to podcasts. And, now I come to find out that you've got one. Awesomes! I haven't checked it out yet. But, from what you wrote, it's right on point. Gots to check it out!

Alex Liki said...

Thanks for doing it Stephen!


hiya stephen :)

hey owen, no uk studio like pixar?

enough uk based animators and smaller studios could get together and merge into one big studio

just a thought

like you said everyone wants to be at pixar but it doesn't mean that it has to be pixar

it can even be done through the interweb


thankx for the podcast and advice stephen :)
