As an artist, musician, or writer, you often hear people tell you that you should always promote your craft. Always work on skills.  Always improve on your work because you never know who may be checking you out.

Having the right person enjoying your craft could lead your passion and hobby into a career or even working along side with your idol.

Dragon Ball Super manga artist Toyotaro is a prime example of this.  Toyotaro started out as a Dragon Ball manga artist.  As a doujin artist he is best known for his Dragon Ball AF doujin manga; a fan project that landed him a job with JUMP Magazine working along side with series creator Akira Toriyama.

A fan working with a series creator man.  That’s perhaps one of the greatest honor you can have that nobody can ever take away from you.

Think about it: Toyotaro had a hobby of making Dragon Ball manga.  He probably never imagined in his life that his passion and love would lead him to working with famed manga artist Akira Toriyama.  He gets paid to create art of his favorite series with the creator.

If you’re a producer keep making beats. A musician? Keep playing. A writer? Keep writing.  An artist? Keep drawing.  Keep promoting yourself and putting you works out for the world.

You really never know who may be enjoying your work.
