My Art & Lifestyle Channel

My Art & Lifestyle Channel - student project

Hey guys, I thought I would share a bit about my channel so far. I an illustration student at the Kansas City Art Institute and I have been wanting to do youtube since I was a freshman in high school. I made some videos back then but stopped because I was nervous and felt like no one would like what I was putting out. I am making 2021 the year I take it more seriously because I think as an artist and creative person, youtube would be the best way for me to share my creative adventures and to keep myself accountable for creating. And, in all honesty, if I could make money from youtube to pay for my education instead of working in a cafe, that would be really great too. Something that I find myself struggling with is balancing what people would watch with what I want to make. And the overall self-judgment that comes with editing videos of yourself.

 

My goal is to make 1 video a week for the next year and to focus on growing but more importantly showcasing myself in a way that is authentic and does not drain my own energy.
