After going through a mindless boggle of status updates on the social conditions of humankind.
My Uncle writes to me:
dont take what I say as advice or anything. Just a few observations.
are u familiar with the work of Joe Sacco, the graphic journalist?
u have a terrific talent. Don't waste it being a statistic at this or that animation studio trying to earn some money.
The world needs independent thinking conscientious artists who have the courage to speak the Truth. Not commercial minded expert technicians. Ur parents have given u some tremendous opportunities.
Do full justice to yourself. Become an artist. Not a technician. These are the most vigorous youthful energetic days of your life. Dont waste them away.
I see that you're finally starting to question and observe. Keep at it. Become self-aware. read the teachings of realized souls like J Krishnamurthi, Eckhart Tolle, Ramakrishna paramhamsa, etc etc. Open your mind. All this will help you become an artist.
