My parents were very proud, because my grandma used to send my art to TV shows for kids about the age of 3. She told me I used to win many prizes. Grandma keeps all what I have given her, and my mom shares FB albums of my art with her colleagues. They aren't worried about my career choice, since they think I'm eligible for a job in the film industry. They are proud of how I do in school and hope to gather for a scholarship for one of the best film academies, but they trust I could even get it on my own by enterring all those art contests we have here and winning them. They know that I haven't found a match in art in my country and they believe, if I gather enough time, nobody in the world could go against me. I think I am improving in everything thanks to their attitude towards me. They had feared for one period for my success, but I made a back-up plan for my education.
My parents hated it. I have been arting since I was like, 4 years old. My mother used to do creative projects with me as a kid like make a fishtank with paper fish but once I got to about 10 she started harping at me that I should grow out of "kindergarten" drawings and stop showing them to her for criticism. When I turned 14 it got worse, they'd confiscate all my art supplies and force me to spend most of my free drawing time with the family because art isn't a legitimate career. I ended up getting kicked out and here I am now in my own private rental still making art, shitting all over their views.
