Breathe Deep, Move On.

“We reviewed your submission and were impressed with your talent. Your
artwork, unfortunately, does not meet our agency’s need at present. We
will retain a sample of your work should our future needs change.”

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
-Sir Winston Churchill

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
-Sir Winston Churchill

No artist out there you are looking at, admiring, wishing you could be like, has the success you hope for, has not had this happen MANY TIMES. Trust me. And it hurts every time. Just as much as the first time. But it is still worth doing over and over and over for the “Yes.” Don’t be too scared to try. Just do what I do, take a deep breath, maybe cry a bit, pout a bit, swear you are going to quit this art nonsense and get a ‘real job,’then get over it and move on. Oh, and a shot of vodka doesn’t hurt either.
