Thought For The Day:
It's mid morning here in NJ, and it's rather gloomy, but I am feeling super creative! I am actually feeling much like I can do anything, which is a good thing since I have so much to take care of.

I mentioned a book in an earlier post called "Imagine" by Jonah Lehrer. It's a pretty deep book that unfolds a little more scientifically how creativity works. As I was reading a chapter called The Unconcealing yesterday I was floored by how many similarities I had with some great artists.

It goes into the idiosyncrasies of a legendary graphic designer who came up with the infamous I (heart) NY campaign. He, much like myself, used whatever medium he needed to in order to get his point across. “ Glaser has no defining style. He isn’t a minimalist or a maximalist, a realist or a cartoonist. (‘I distrust styles’, he says. ‘To have a style is to be trapped.’) Instead, Glaser treats each assignment as a unique problem with its own requirements and constraints. He doesn’t know what the answer will look like or what kind of image it will require.”

I completely understand how Glaser feels. Working with just one medium or just in one particular style definitely makes me feel like a caged bird begging to be free. I paint, draw, design, etc. how I feel, and to do anything less is like committing a highway robbery. I understand that sometimes in this industry I may have to bend to fit the mold, but for the most part, I am stern about not fitting in the box if it doesn't lend to how I feel.

So here is to using different mediums to express who I was created to be!

Until next post...ta ta! Don't forget to share, comment and follow!

Sketch Of The Day:
I had been trying to sketch this all week. I took it on as a 30 min sketch. I like the image and took some artistic liberties with it.
