Warrior Girl - a call to arms

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." — Ralph Waldo Emerson "Warrior Girl" my new ink drawing of Athena, we all have our battles but this one we all face.
The fight demands persistence, This wonderful letter by Pixar artist Austin Madison was written to inspire artists through the rough times of creative drought and doubt. (courtesy of The Animators Letter Project ) If you have trouble reading this format afull transcript can be found at "Letters of Note"
So hold your shields (or palettes) high my friends!
