One of the most frustrating aspects of having an art career is the fundamentally opposite pulls of making and publicizing one's work.
If you want to make your work the best it can be, you have to have enough humility to know you can always do better than what comes easily. If you think you're good enough now, you won't grow.
If you want to be able to pitch your work to others, you have to believe it's the best thing ever. If you don't believe your own hype, you won't convince anyone else.
