I'M VERY HAPPY!!
I participated in the the Portafolio Domestica for Colombian Young Talent 2020, a book that showcases the work of 150 Colombian artist under 30 into 5 categories: Animation, Illustration, Editorial design, Branding and Photography.
I'm also the winner of the Animation category!!
I steel feel amazed that I get mentions in my professional career. I know it is very common for artists to feel very insecure about their work, and the Impostor Syndrome is very real and ingrained in all of us.
I understand our need to try to do better in what we like to do, but I try very hard to trust in the people that see my work and like it. That is the basis of this profession, after all, we have to do our best and trust the rest of the team is also doing their best.
My recommendation is always to hold onto this opportunities and just TRY, if they happen it is amazing and validating, but when they don't. happen, and trust me, I have a fair amount of those as well, then it is not the right moment and not the right skills, and the worl keep going and you have time to try again in a different way.
