This was the response I got from a boy named Elijah on flickr. I told him simply that he should never give up, and this is what he told me. It just meant a lot to me.

Thanks.

I am really coming to terms with my struggle for recognition. I have worked really hard at improving my art for myself, and not for anyone else. I am beginning to realize that the best art, the best work, actually means something, and is not just an empty shot at popularity. So I still may want to be discovered, but the hunger for fame doesn’t consume me anymore. I am now just consumed by a love for my art itself. And I think It’s helping me a lot.

But I’d also like to say that your words mean a lot. And every bit of encouragement that I get pushes me that much harder, and adds that little bit of confidence that I need. I know that, whatever happens, I will become an artist. No matter my degree, or education, or fame. I will be an artist.

-Elijah
