How do you determine success?

I think success for me would be someone viewing my work and being able to recognise themselves in it and finding comfort in that.

How have the cloud / cloud communities helped you?

Cloud communities have helped me connect with people that I think I wouldn’t have otherwise known about, different creative scenes and interests that I never thought I would be interested in so that’s been really great and eye opening.
