Some harsh but very very true words

When people let me review their portfolios (on career day or open days at my game design school) I explicitly ban them from commenting during the review… …because otherwise they will follow the impulse to downplay everything I see in an attempt at being humble."this is an old image…"
"I’m not happy with that one…""this is just a sketch…"
"I did this really quickly…""there is better stuff on later pages…"It’s totally understandable to have those impulses. The quality of art is not empirical data and therefore impossible to measure. Good art, bad art, it all comes down to standards. And you don’t want to come off as naive or self-absorbed.But just don’t do it. Don’t talk yourself down in front of others. In the best case you have someone supportive who now thinks “damn, this person needs to be prepped up all the time. Do I really want to work with somebody like that” or in worst case “now that you say it, yeah, this is kinda lame/rushed/unfinished/lazy, go away.”You can only submit what you have. If that is not enough, then it’s not enough. Your attitude will not change that. But if it is enough, you can do serious harm by not being confident of who you are now.This means appreciating what you are able to do right now and have a clear vision of what you want to learn, be confident that you will learn it in time. Be proud.

This is really important.  Eliminate this urge.  Eliminate it professionally, when having contact with people in a position to buy your work.  Eliminate it socially, when you just share your work for fun.  Destroy this urge as thoroughly as you possibly can.
Because when you have done that, you’ll find that you feel at least 25% less shitty about your own work.  You lose the urge to do it.  You stop reinforcing those negative thoughts, and they retreat.  They may never go away completely (although they might!) but this is good practice for ignoring those thoughts flat-out.
Don’t shit-talk yourself.  Even if you can’t be SO PROUD, don’t ever try to influence anyone’s opinion toward your work in the negative.
Try to love your work.  Try to see what you learned from each piece, even if it’s a failure.  If you feel that you learned nothing, appreciate the fact that just spending time on it is honing your skills and giving you valuable practice.
i used to be super not-confident in my own work.  When I stopped pointing out the flaws in my own stuff, I felt better about it almost immediately.

A sixth grader’s advice to future sixth graders.

This is so important yet it has so few notes

The Taliban those snipers pissed on had hung the arms and legs of a marine, that was blown apart by an IED, in a tree. The things the media doesn’t tell…Fuck those pieces of shit, they deserved more than just being pissed on.

Hey remember when those 3 American contractors were killed, burned, and hung on a bridge in Iraq?Remember after the Battle of Mogadishu how the Somalians dragged the dismembered bodies of the Delta operators through the streets?

Here you go everybody, what the media won’t show you.

Four men, had their beaten, burned, tortured, and murdered bodies hung by a bridge, while everybody in town celebrated. You know what those men were doing? Guarding a convoy delivering aid supplies to people who needed them. I guess nobody remembers the British Army soldier who got separated from his squad at night, when they found his dead body in the morning, the Taliban left him naked when they took everything off of it. Remember Marine A, who killed the Taliban member after they found him injured? He went to jail because they were supposed to give him aid, I wonder if the Taliban would have done the same thing for Marine A if he had been shot. This isn’t racism, this isn’t religious hate, this is fucking war. Now get that stick out of your arse, wake the fuck up, and get your nose out of matters you don’t understand. 


The hardest thing about realizing you don’t love me, is that you spent so much time pretending that you did.

Someone actually framed this 50 cent tweet…. I have to say it puts together the whole house.
