“Life is short – enjoy what you do”
Logic will bring you from A to Z. Imagination will get you everywhere.
Logic is a big part in my work, but imagination is the one thing that keeps me relaxed, balanced and happy. Thank you, Albert Einstein, for phrasing this so well. 🙂
Maybe it’s time to go to our favorite flea market today and find some more…
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in life is
“A mistake is the best teacher.”
Therefore it’s a mature part of my creative process to try something, fail to create it, look what went wrong and start over again. Sometimes even a slightly different result sparks another idea. That’s why I’m (most of the time) thankful for failures. And so this quote had to be in my sketchbook.:)
Hope you all had a lovely weekend like me! 🙂
Do you have a favorite color? Mine is definitely red. Whatever I look for – clothes, deco material, washi tape – everytime I see at first red ones. Always. It’s so bright, powerful and gives me courage.
Courage is important for me, when I’m working creatively. To live a creative life you have to try new things, even when you fail and it doesn’t work out the way you wanted it to. And if you’re not strong enough to take those failures, courage is even more important to try again and again and again…
Therefore my favorite quote is: “Another word for creativity is courage” by G. Prince
Have a nice Sunday 🙂
This is my very first page of my sketchbook from the Sketchbook Project. I’m not 100 % satisfied, how it turned out. But, as you all know, the first page is always the hardest part of a new notebook or a new sketchbook. This very first blank page, that’s staring at you… waiting to draw your first line, to make a mistake… Do you know this feeling?
But if you finally filled it successfully, the creative process magically begins to flow and one idea hits another. At least this is, how it works for me. So the next pages were much more, how I hoped they would be. From now on I will show more of my sketchbook every Sunday. 🙂
