Welcome to Bravest Ever: a blog of art, writing, and other creative works in progress.
A little bit of backstory: I’ve always enjoyed creating things. When I was young, I wanted to be a writer or an artist. As I got older, I decided graphic design would be a good match. I honestly intended to pursue one of these paths… but I never did. I was scared. I was afraid to show people my stuff, because I didn’t think I was any good.
In the years since, my creative pursuits have been relegated to “hobbies” or “dabbling” or “what I did on my lunch break.” I still wasn’t confident enough to take my work seriously, and I didn’t mentally invest in it. I’ve spent the last several years trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, under the assumption that I didn’t have any special talents or interests. Only recently did it hit me: I’ve known what I wanted all this time, I’ve just been too scared to pursue it.
So I figure it’s finally time for me to be brave.
This blog is more of an open notebook than a portfolio; I’m figuring things out as I go along. Not everything here will be great. A lot of it will be rough around the edges. Some of it may be genuinely bad. But as long as it’s worth trying, and as long as I learn from it, it’s not junk.
I’d love to hear from you; email me at email@example.com or find me on Twitter @TheBravestEver. I’ll answer any questions, and maybe take requests.
