Sarah Sheppard, cartoonist

My creative practice used to feel amorphous and inefficient. I spent a huge amount of time worrying about my project, feeling bad for not getting anything done, feeling insecure about my lack of skill.

Since finishing CFW, the difference is amazing! I no longer wait until I feel up for working…just plant my ass in the chair. My insecurities about my artistic skills are still there, but they’ve lost a lot of their charge.

The project is no longer amorphous and overwhelming because I’ve broken it down into tangible, achievable steps. I feel hopeful now…I feel like I’m doing the thing.
