In search of creativity… where is it found? #art #sketchbook #artwork #notes #creative

Here are some of my artistic beliefs:

1. Creating rules, limitations, or specific projects can spark creative genius.

2. Fine art is not the only type of “ART.” A sketchbook should also contain notes, shopping lists, observations, and current worries.

3. An artist does not have ‘talent’ but the courage to try and the willingness to learn.

4. Art is a continual practice. And yes, you can lose it.

5. Create art for yourself, but aim to inspire others by boldly sharing your ideas and work.

I have recently started a new blog. It will probably fail… but that’s not going to stop me from trying. In fact, I promise to dye my hair bright pink if I ever reach over 1,000 Twitter followers or 1,000 Facebook likes. [Not sure it would be easy with my dark brown lion’s mane…] But there it is. I said it.

So…. start liking, commenting, following, and retweeting. My hope is that my Naïsbook Project will inspire you to be more creative and call yourself an ‘artist.’ You can read about the purpose and name of the project HERE. Or like my Facebook page solely because you want one more pink haired person in this world, I would be alright with that as well.

White Text on a Black Background.

David Ogilvy HATES white text on a black background. I’m being serious… He states this fact at least 5 times in his book Ogilvy on Advertising. Statistics show that inverse text reduces readership. But I’m not trying to sell you anything, so hopefully this won’t upset the advertising gods out there. Please prove the legendary Ad Man wrong and read this quote because its content is well-written. 

It’s fun to break the rules sometimes, no?

TWO THINGS.

My philosophy of life: simplicity and happiness… YOU ONLY NEED TWO THINGS.

To build a house… Playing cards and persistence.

To learn a language… Memorization and courage.

To make a film… A camera and creativity.

To be heard... A good idea and one person who truly follows you.

To be beautiful… a smile and mascara.

To make a cake... Nutella and eggs. Don’t believe me? Click Here for the Recipe/Proof.
