1) Don’t limit yourself. The world is always trying to limit you, so why limit yourself?

2) Don’t expect to make a lot of money. If you want money, do something else. You can make money in art but you probably won’t and probably not good art so… you must live without expecting it.

3) Protect your time, everyone is out to steal your time. As an artist it is your most valuable asset.
