Wise Words


Ira Glass on Storytelling from David Shiyang Liu on Vimeo.

My friend Anile posted this great video of Ira Glass (my hero) talking about the early years in an artist's career. It's so true what he says here, and I feel like I've been, and am still at times, very much in the land of "beginner". It will probably be something I'll always wrestle with, I think that having only completed a year of formal graphic design school will always leave me with a self-taught chip on my shoulder. But, it's also important to recognize how far I've come. I constantly feel like my work is improving, even looking back on things I did only a few months ago.

I just want to watch this film over and over again.

Hope you had a great Wednesday!
