Dealing with the Comparison Monster


Today I've got a video on something I think all of us get as artists & that's an attack of the comparison monster -------- 'my art's not as good as [insert name here]', 'Why is everyone else's art better than mine?'

I had a think about it, and about anything that has helped me with this, and the result is this video which gives ways I think you can transform, or understand, or use this issue that we all have to face from time to time. It’s not like most of my other vids, it’s more personal than arty, but as you probably already know if you are reading this I think it’s important we share ourselves in these areas also. 

So here is the video and I have just posted a topic for it on Journal Workshops to continue the discussion, please feel free to add anything to it also here:

Much love


  1. So jenny taught me how to make books out of cereal boxes and buttons from cardboard and now she is teaching me to not be so hard on myself as I discover my creativity. Jenny you are an inspiring teacher! Thank you for this remarkable video. You touched my heart!!!!

  2. Hi Jennibellie! Thank you so much for this! I've missed your videos on here :) I watched your video and then went on to the next art blog on my list and the blogger had posted this video that highlights a portion of an interview with Ira Glass. It was so fitting with what you said, I thought you'd like it: Cheers!
    P.S. I know you said you weren't fishing for compliments, but I've always thought that you are absolutely gorgeous. I've often wished that you would update your About me photo, so it shows you how you are now! Your techniques for combating the comparison monster could definitely apply to physical beauty too :)

  3. Awesome! And yes it's far too easy to be hard on oneself.
