So I lasted one month without blogging and now I miss it. I think I mostly miss sharing things and feeling connected to other creative folk who are out there in the same situation that I am, The creative juggling act of work and life and the ability to actually create things get’s too much sometimes with the pressure to do good design or produce art and not be constrained by the pressure of deadlines, narrow mindedness or small budgets. I think I need this almost diary-like share time that blogging gives me to keep me on track as I have been jumping between projects lately instead of being consumed by one at a time which is how I prefer to work.
I am having a current re-obsession with Salvadore Dali’s work. His Dali lips hugely inspired me as a young designer first finding my way when so I feel somehow connected to him, His eccentricities are not lost on me either.
“It is good taste, and good taste alone, that possesses the power to sterilize and is always the first handicap to any creative functioning.”
Or my other current favourite…
“In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.”
How very true these ring for me at the present time. My creative mind is on fire…it seems I am back.
