It’s really good [Intro plays] Back in high school. I had this art teacher [we’ll] call her Miss Holly [and] she was not a fan of anime let alone the anime art style. She wasn’t a grouch or anything I guess she was just loyal to the traditional art styles. I on the other hand loved anime still do today It was literally the reason I got into drawing and art and without it. I might not be where I am today, [so] [Freshman] year new school New Year new me blah blah blah and I chose art as an elective course I was excited to prove myself and show everyone [my] talent because I practiced so [much] and Didn’t want to keep it all to myself One of our tasks was to draw in our sketchbook every day Didn’t matter what it was as long [as] we put some sort of effort into it I Showed her my drawing. It was a sketch [of] an anime character With her annoyingly nasally voice she said oh Anime, huh, it’s good, but I’m not really a fan of the style. I mean, how did they even get their hair like that? What? She doesn’t like my art Okay, first of all being an art teacher Isn’t it your responsibility? To kind of encourage your students regardless of how they choose to visually express their work the whole Basis of why I chose the elective was so I could step away from the objectiveness of the other courses and have the freedom to practice my talents granted I know certain art projects require certain discretions when it comes to styles but we’re talking about a personal Sketchbook here and Okay, I admit. I was a naive kid and my mistake was that I felt I needed the validation of an adult simply because I believed she had more experience and Was therefore assumed that her skill [level] was our goal to emulate Whatever [anyway] throughout, the whole year she would continue her anime criticisms and continue to try to convert me like okay palpatine But near the end [of] the school year [I] got this opportunity you see my school was actually brand new at the time and we were the first generation of students to inhabit it and at the End of every [year]. What book is made to represent the memories of the past year? the Yearbook Actually, it was miss holly who brought it up to me she said the Yearbook committee required a cover design and she came to me To design it this was my chance This was my opportunity [I] don’t even think I did my homework that night it. It wasn’t important. My pride was at stake I spent the whole night on it But as I made it as I was sketching out the roughs and drawing concepts I felt like my style was changing as I drew it out. I kept hearing that nagging voice in my head That’s too anime What’s happening to me? The next day I gave her my design Looking back at it [hind] side [wise] but I think it looks horrible Because you can see my internal struggle with trying to maintain my passion, but also my conflict with trying to please Miss Holly She approved it I had designed my high school’s first Yearbook cover Half of me was so proud to [have] been part of the history in the making But the other part of me felt like I just betrayed the leaf village due to the seductions of Miss Hollychimaru But the deed was done There was no turning back the following year I took art again except miss holly wasn’t the art teacher that time she was on Maternity leave The new teacher will call her miss banff became one of my favorite teachers She was this young hip woman who you could tell has been through some things, but those experiences nevertheless I molded her into an amazing person I respected her and she Respected my drawing style From that point on I [never] let anyone discourage me from drawing what I wanted to draw I mean, I have to take constructive Criticism here, and there of course that’s necessary in the art world But I loved anime as a kid and I still do today it’s the reason I learned to draw and the reason why I continued [to] draw I Kept with my passions and followed my dreams and look where I ended up So eat it, [Miss] Holly I know it’s only been like three minutes, but have you watched erased yet?
