I've had a great fear of appearing silly and unintelligent since I was very little. This probably has something to do with the high standards I and others hold myself against. Over time, I realized that it's okay to make mistakes so long as we (1) admit fault, (2) understand what needs work, and (3) learn from those mistakes. So here I am! Posting one of my own pet peeves - a spelling error! In this instance, I was so excited to begin inking and adding color to this sketch that I didn't take a step back to proofread my ribbon! Yes, Mike Wazo-W-ski has a W in it!
Moral of the story is, don't be afraid, kids. We all do silly things from time to time. It's not the end of the world. Own up to it and remind yourself: "I can be better."
