I want to share an article I’ve just read. It struck me, because I agree with everything in it.
Here it is, it’s called “How to steal like an artist“, by Austin Kleon.
The whole article is about the process of making artwork consistently, as a vocation or profession.
Stealing in this context doesn’t mean copying nor robbing. Stealing means “to make it your own”, figuratively speaking. Be sensitive and open, observe and once something resonates in you, “steal it”, filter it through your own experience and ideas and make art out of it.
If you copy you miss the chance of finding yourself through the creative process.
Anyway, this is just one of the many interesting points in this article. I hope you’ll find it enlightening.
