Adorable lion cub Karis loves playing with Autumn leaves so much keepers have swept them into her enclosure
The 11-week-old cub was born in September at Blair Drummond Safari Park
Lion keeper David Reid thought leaves would entertain the tiny cub.

This has been something that has been bothering me for the past few years, every time I encounter someone who’s just started as an artist, they put themselves down because they’re intimidated by artists who are more experienced. Intimidation is something that every artist has (or will) encounter in their lives, and they need to pull through that fear in order to grow as an artist. Take that intimidation and be inspired about it. What makes it intimidating? What makes their work look so unique? That’s where your learning opportunistic moments will occur, you find those reasons and you create something new out of all that you’ve learned!
I believe that anyone, ANYONE, can become an artist. It takes dedication and determination, but I promise you that drawing is one of the most rewarding art forms I’ve ever experienced. You will always learn something new with it, therefore, the fun never stops!
Reblogging this because I needed to hear this as a kid, and still need to hear it from time to time….
Same here. I still have to remind myself at times that there is always room for improvement, and different artists progress at different paces. Just keep at it!
