George Pérez on pride

“Let your pride go. The one thing that every artist has to face, I can’t think of a single artist who hasn’t, is you have to get go of your pride. ‘Cause the first thing that you’re gonna have to accept is criticism. And it’s par for the course. If these people are paying you for your work, they have a right to criticize you, because they’re going to be paying you money. Whatever way you want to learn works for you, do it. But the one emphasis is learn. Don’t be afraid to take advice and be smart enough to know when the advice works for you and don’t criticize it; don’t criticize the critics because they don’t like your work.”
