Quotes:

“Sometimes I consider myself a designer, sometimes I consider myself an artist, and sometimes I don’t consider myself either. I feel like trash and should do something else with my life.”

“It really just depends on what the persons mindset is, because if they want to go be a designer the way I did in freelance. I got lucky in knowing people, but most of freelance is on grind and you have to be dedicated with that.”

“I don’t have the drive to be the richest person in the world, I don’t have the drive to be the biggest designer. I just want to make good stuff and get paid for it.”
