Meet the Maker: Day 14

Day 14: How I Learnt (Learned?)

Most of my learning came from self-study and practicing. I find that I learn best when I’m doing. I like to observe and study my subject and focus on the little details in bringing it to life. 

In recent years, the internet and social media has made learning anything so much more accessible now with an endless supply of videos and articles on techniques. 

I also took a couple of classes for fun after college. It was great to have that structured learning atmosphere and be able to learn from the other students in the class. It’s interesting to see how everyone interprets the same subject differently.
