Art making is a huge part of my personal identity. I try to make artwork daily and when I don't, I feel kinda bad about it. But, when I zoom out from the situation it seems silly. Why do I care so much about this creative energy I feel, and why do I insist on indulging it, even when the outcome doesn't usually make any sense?
I made this comic a few years ago--it explores my feeling of wondering why making art matters.
