I starred you here because I too have destroyed many of my drawings/writings over the years.
However, Night Star makes a good point. Remember that Stephen King's wife found the novel "Carrie" in the trash. I've never read it, but the point is
that it started his career as "the King of Horror."
Also, real art is more to do with the soul than it is craft. Sometimes we don't see it ourselves and need an outside perspective. I've had art which I
regarded as much superior to my others which no one liked but me, and others which I felt rather weak but which others loved. When it comes to
touching people, or getting one's career/business off the ground, you really do need to listen what others think (since it's for them.) Art comes from
self, but we are not always the best judge of which of our creative expressions the world really wants or needs. After all, we express from the soul
and that concludes our role.
