Nobody in my family said, "No - you can't do that..." My parents just made stuff up and then did it... so, I did too. I just love the massive, and multi-layered, heart-and-soul puzzle these various art forms are: music, visual arts, film, design. And there's just no possible way you can ever master these forms, so bag that hope. Run as hard as you can, your whole life, and there's a chance you'll get on some map or another.
I want to collaborate. Email me if you want.
