“And everyone knows that what we say isn't always communicated properly. Like any form of art, it takes practice. But the more you practice seeing it from other people's points of view, the better you'll get at communication. And this doesn't just stop at verbal communication. With our paintings and drawings, that's a form of communication as well. And if something is meant to be funny but actually is super offensive, you aren't communicating your intended message. The good thing is, with practice, you get better at it.”
