The Ant, The Grasshopper and Discipline

by Sandy Askey-Adams on 7/28/2015 8:25:46 AM

Fill your emotional fuel tank so you can become more disciplined and responsible, and so you can take some further steps with your art (or anything else in life) rather than getting stalled or running out of gas. That fuel can feed our creativity, our confidence, our contentment, our faith in ourselves, our hope, our strength, our patience, and help us recognize our purpose. It can even enable us to also handle our disappointments and mistakes because our mind is working and running on full power. [...]

Contemplate the Template

by Donald Fox on 7/24/2015 8:11:17 AM
7 Comments

Likely, the ability to see and recognize patterns was an early survival mechanism (distinguishing the stripes of a tiger from the striped patterns in a field of tall grasses, for example) that we cleverly turned into creative applications that enabled us to build civilizations and all other forms of human expression. We have been refining the various templates for our existence ever since. It’s not by accident that template is the major part of contemplate. [...]

Stop Listening to Critics

by Mark Edward Adams on 7/20/2015 8:22:33 AM
42 Comments

The life of an artist is never easy. In order to find your personal style and innovate, you must move past the judgments of those who know less. This means you will have to grow a thick skin. You must move forward with the confidence that your work can stand on its own despite harsh words from others. As the director Francis Ford Coppola explained, the things that receive the most criticism in the beginning are often the same things that brings you the most praise later in life. [...]

I'm not sure my life would be different today if I could have heard these bits of advice back then, but it would have helped my creative focus to learn that becoming a full-time artist wouldn't happen without years of diligent hard work and business strategies, and that the results would be more "worth it" than I ever dreamed.
