Journal52: Week 20

All caught up on my Journal52, so this week there’s only one spread, and it’s the current prompt–Good Advice. I’m pretty sure I got this from Austin Kleon’s Steal Like An Artist, but I’m also pretty sure other people have said it before, too. Probably because it’s such good advice.

This art thing, I feel compelled to make art, and I don’t even know why. Honestly, I don’t like a lot of my stuff. I’m still in that phase Ira Glass talks about in his now-famous good advice on creativity & good taste,  that I know what I like but I don’t quite yet have the skills to produce it. It’s why everything I do looks so different, why I keep trying new techniques, throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks. There’s a lot of work to be done to get there, and it’s important to me, so I keep showing up and doing the work.  Someday I’ll find my footing, and this blog will be around to document the journey. Or thoroughly embarrass me. Or both. We’ll see!
