mizantius asked: Hey, just wanted to say that my parents gave me that talk before too. They said I couldn't make it as an artist because it took me months/years to finish any traditional media stuff. So I was a good little child and got a degree in Biology. Now I'm stuck with a job I don't really like and doesn't really pay that well, trying to work on art again to get better. At least you have a cool webcomic!
Hey thanks for thinking my webcomic is cool! Yeah, my parents grew up with the notion of “Be a doctor” and you’ll have an “easy life” its all about supporting your future kids because that’s the Asian way. They even told me they rather have me be a “shitty doctor” because the hospital it the one that deals with if I fuck up and end up getting sued. Which i think is CRAZY FUCKED UP.
Lemme just say anyone being a doctor because their family told them to and they’re happy getting paid and don’t give a shit about the people they’re helping you’re fucked up. Same goes to teachers that just want that tenure and cops that just want the pension.
But yeah I don’t listen to them when they tell me that I should be something else I just makes me feel poopy because they don’t support what I want to do because they don’t try to understand it. Like if I had a kid and they were into something rando like plant science imma help my kid out and get them all the good info’s google can offer.
ANYWHOO, But yeah just do what you want as long as you accept all the good and bad thats going to come from it. Best of luck with your art!
