Creative Fears and How to Beat Them

When October arrives, all kinds of challenges appear on social media to encourage artists to improve their skills under specific topics.

From a creative perspective, I think this practices are good for beginners, however they are creativity killers, because you just follow someone else’s list of things to do, instead of creating your own challenges.

Inspired by Halloween characters, I created this mini series of animated illustrations with some of the most common fears an artist face in his/her daily basis when it comes to create, and some advice to deal with them.

After posting the illustrations, I organized an IG Live Session with another illustrator where we shared with the audience our thoughts on creative fears and some useful tips for those who struggle.
