“I think the minute that it becomes too unbearable to do it despite your circumstances that’s when honestly you should stop doing it.”
If anything I feel like the benefit of art has always been to feel comfort and to make you feel less alone- to provide connection to other people. You may have had this experience by yourself, I may have had this experience by myself, but we can watch this together and we can share this catharsis and find renewed connection. That’s really what I hope to achieve.
Art is what we need to make the world valuable. I think the world might exist for the sake of art. I’m going to go with, ‘joy.’
It’s something I’m still aspiring to, that I’m really hoping I can achieve. I want my characters to be happy. I want them to have peace.
