Art and Architecture, Inspiring Tidbits

Constant Creation

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it.

While they are deciding, make even more art.”

-Andy Warhol

Since I’ve had Warhol on the brain of late (as evidenced here), I figured I’d share these inspiring words of Andy’s with you on this lovely Tuesday. This sentiment is one of those phrases I’ve got scribbled onto sticky notes all over my notebooks and fridge, and it has helped empower me to keep up a constant work flow this past year. I think it is so important to create with abandon (whether you’re editing a Power Point presentation, designing tube socks or writing a novel), and Mr. Warhol is so right that you should never care too much about how your work will be received. As he says, the important thing is that you keep creating. So, here’s to having dozens of creative projects on the back burner and refusing to wait for a verdict of critical praise or panning. Some of your work will be great and some will be atrocious, but you are always a success when you’re constantly creating new things…What will you create next?

      You are the second highly trustworthy person to recommend that movie to me, Tony. This means I simply must go see it before it leaves theaters. Thanks for reminding me! 🙂
