Letter From a Frustrated Artist – Draftsmen S1E11

August 13, 20190 Comments

Stan gets an email from a frustrated student and forwards it to Marshall. Marshall gets obsessed with it spending days and days pondering the issue! This leads to discussions on mastery, overcoming frustration, and how having a negative attitude hurts your progression. A listener makes the draftsmen choose between technical prowess or art that evokes emotion. Blackwing pencils definitely does not sponsor this episode, but hopefully will in the future 😉
