Pearls from artists* # 512
* an ongoing series of quotations – mostly from artists to artists – that offers wisdom, inspiration, and advice for the sometimes lonely road we are on.
Let inspiration lead you wherever it wants to lead you. Keep in mind that for most of history people just made things, and they didn’t make a big freaking deal about it.
We make things because we like making things.
We pursue the interesting and the novel because we like the interesting and the novel.
