Failure is Your Friend

“An artist’s failures are as valuable as his successes…by misjudging one thing he conforms something else, even if at the time he does not know what that something else is.”

Art & Fear

“…the seed for your next work lies embedded in the imperfections of your current piece.”

That’s a quote from this book:

Geoff Flack, one of the instructors at Gage, recommended it. If you (like pretty much any other artist) ever wondered about yourself as an artist and/or your work – be it writing, music or painting, you name it – you have to read this book. I did, it’s fantastic. In fact I just started reading it for a second time. It’s a quick read (122 pages) and every word is worth reading and thinking about.
