yellowsleevesinternalsomethings: Just saw your work in tea garden. Love it! Do you have an Instagram?

Thank you! The show will be up until April 29th, so invite all of your friends, family, and acquaintances on Tea Garden dates. They’ll applaud you for your exquisite taste in beverage as well as your ravishing fascination of art. :) But yes I do. It’s @Bobbertlee. I hope my work was able to make your trip to the Tea Garden more enjoyable. Kudos!

prepetual-motion: what would you advise a person who is interested in becoming an illustrator or other careers in the art field? it feels nearly impossible with the pressures of others, telling me to become a scientist or engineer, etc. ...how difficult is it to support oneself, and do your think jobs are hard to come by?

bobbyrogers:

One of the first pieces of advise I received from a professor the first day of college (4 yrs ago) was: “You will only go as far as you push yourself.” And my response was, ‘oh, that should be easy..’ I was wrong…very wrong. The creative world is so saturated that it is increasingly challenging to make it ahead. However, those who are not devoted get whittled out rather quickly. You should ask yourself if you love art…is it an obsession? When needed, are you willing to let it devour every sliver of your existence? Can you give up on trivial nonessential habits and turn that into a driving force towards triumph?

This is something others cannot  comprehend. Their fear of your failure overshadows your wanting to have a blissful life. So naturally they try to ‘help’ by forcing whatever they deem to be the most wise decision for you. When really, only YOU can prevent forest fires will know what’s best for you. And even then, MANY professional artists have day jobs. I love illustration, but I also work as a designer for a magazine because I’ve always had a fascination with GD.

Despite popular belief, there is definitely dinero to be earned in the artistic sphere, but as the modern day guru Eric Thomas likes to mention, “You will never be successful until I do not have to pay you a dime for you to do what you love..” (I may be paraphrasing a bit). Point is, if you’re patient, determined, passionate, and all of those other adjectives.. just like any professional - eventually, you’ll be able to structure your path in whichever direction you decide.
