CREATIVITY OFTEN HAPPENS IN THE MOMENT
I huge portion of my art-making begins in a sketchbook. As a photographer, 'sketchbook' is probably not the most apt term. Notebook, maybe? I write. I write my thoughts. I print and paste recent photographs or important items that I have picked up in my journeys: a flyer from a punk rock show, a jaywalking ticket, notes from photography classes, wrist bands from concerts, some aesthetically pleasing found items, etc.
DOES YOUR ART MATTER?
You're an artist. You might also be a student, or a teacher, or a barista, or homeless, or a ___________. You struggle to make work sometimes. You constantly ask yourself if making art is worth it. Does your work make a difference? Does your work matter?
IT'S NOT THAT HARD...UNTIL IT IS
So, you've decided that you love art! Yay! We need some great art in the world. We need your ideas! We need your creativity! We need your mind to help our community to build the next trends in culture!
