The insecurity-inducing effects of social media also became a big talking point, with self-comparison taking centre stage. In her rules for overcoming creative anxiety, animator Katy Wang reminded us that “comparison is the thief of joy; I always feel demotivated after scrolling for a long time. It’s impossible to enjoy drawing when you feel like you’re just copying what you’ve seen other people do,” she conceded.
With all of this in mind, we want to practice what we preach. Since our content is so heavily work-related, we’ve decided to fully switch off this Christmas break. From the end of this week, you won’t be hearing from us until you’ve settled into 2019 – hopefully refreshed and rested.
See you next year!
