Another great read that is worth calling out – Banishing your Inner Critic, by Denise Jacobs. Once again, it’s from the viewpoint of a writer, but it’s so integral to the creative process, that it carries right over into the visual arts realm.

It’s healthy to be critical of your own work – nothing worse than a terrible artist with delusions of grandeur – but not so picky that you squelch your own productivity on the Altar of Perfectionism.
We’re all human (or mostly human, or passing off as humans) – we cannot make the Perfect Image. So let’s have fun making Good and Great Images instead.
