Advice for artists…
1. Go to an art school that doesn´t cost too much. Those who go to Yale and Columbia might get a nine-month career bump right after graduation, but you´ll all be back on the same level in a year, and you won´t be in as much debt.
2. Envy will eat you alive.
3. Stay up late with each other after all the professors go to sleep. Support one another.
4. You can´t think your way through an art problem. As John Cage said: “Work comes from work.”
5. Follow your obsessions. If you love the Cubs that much, maybe they need to be in your work.
6. Don´t take other people´s ideas of skill. Do brain surgery with an axe.
7. Don´t define success by money, but by time.
8. Do not let rejection define you.
9. Don´t worry about getting enough sleep. Worry about your work.
10. Be delusional. It´s okay to tell yourself you´re a genius sometimes."

it’s okay to not know what you want from life!!!! it’s okay to not know your future!!! it’s okay to take time off and spend time with yourself!!! it’s okay to be undefinable!! you owe an explanation to absolutely no one!!!!!!!!!
I’m starting a instructional project in a few months and I need some people to workshop and bounce ideas off of.
It’s going to be more design theory and research based, so if that is something you are interested in, hit me up.
Specifically I’d like professionals that are working in studios or freelance to help me out, because the project is geared towards those not in that position, and more of a teaching tool. So if you or someone you know would be interested, reblog this so they can see it or send them a link to me. Alternately, you can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to get in contact.
I’m excited to get this off the ground, and I cant wait to present this.
More info soon, and might get a separate blog set up once things get a bit more solid!
