I Think I Have Imposters Syndrome, but it Might be Someone Else’s

Overview

Xerxes grew up surrounded by creatives. His dad was an architect and an artist who ran his own architecture practice out of their basement and owned his own art gallery too. He was a designer, and he could draw and paint almost anything. His attention to detail was crazy to Xerxes, his ability to create the same letterform, every single time made his head hurt, he was like a robot. In school, when there were art or design related projects, Xerxes felt paralyzed because he didn’t feel like he could do anything that would compare to the skill his dad had, probably ever. His dad would help him illustrate his ideas for K-12 school projects, which worked out great… ‘till he went away.

Objective

Leave feeling like you aren’t alone – we all have it to some degree, setting it free is the key.
