30 Days of Drawing

| 26 April, 2014 23:14

Draw everyday for 30 days....

 

Do not tell anyone that you are taking up this exercise, though...

 

Make up your mind that you will emerge from this month with 30 drawings

 

good or bad

 

They say we are usually afraid of success

 

We think success will suck the life from the struggle

 

the struggle that allowed you to create what you did

 

 

BUT they say that to tell people you plan to accomplish something 

 

is, actually, the dumbest thing you could do

 

to speak it makes your brain think you already did it

 

when you didn't really

 

NOT at ALL

 

you just imagined it so wonderfully that the pleasure center of your brain

 

became so saturated with accomplishment

 

that you forgot to remember to accomplish it in real life

 

 

So, TODAY decide that you will not go to bed

 

YOU WILL NOT go to bed unless you draw something first

 

it doesn't matter what it looks like

 

YOU MUST spend 15 minutes drawing

 

Every fucking damn day

 

30 of 'em

 

it's just the same as I have been preaching since the beginning

 

You better be making those pictures in your head REAL

 

 

Does a devout christian go to bed without saying thanks to god?

 

Does Hitler go to bed without plotting his next move?

 

Does Walt Disney go to bed without putting in a mickey?

 

exactly

 

 

Don't front

 

Don't just imagine yourself an artist 

 

and, then, think that the shitty habits you picked up in its name

 

are just a result of the fact you 'see pictures in your head'

 

no body gives a fuck about the pictures in your head

 

they give a fuck about the pictures you DRAW

 

so, all's i gotta say, fool, is you better get drawing

 

DO NOT sleep tonight unless you draw something first

 

you let the art gods know you didn't waste their love

 

AND after you draw you can behave with no need for recompensence

 

because you can show them your ID

 

I am because I AM
