What is originality? Undetected plagiarism.
The book Steal Like An Artist is crammed with straight forward wisdom. Each time I open this book I find myself having “ah ha” moments. The author Austin Kleon provides friendly reminders on how to unlock your creativity.
My favorite point made in the book is: SCHOOL YOURSELF.
School is one thing. Education is another. Ah ha. Go to library. Google your dreams. Google your problems. We are swimming in an ocean of information yet drowning in ignorance. Yes, I have a college degree yet sooo much of what I’ve learned is from spare time of my OWN research. “School” doesn’t make someone smarter nor better than you. Its a lousy excuse to use not going to school why you don’t know something when resources surround us. Looking things up and going deeper than anyone else is what gets you ahead. Two of my most creative friends, one is a high school dropout and the other never went to college. They constantly challenge me when I come to them about ideas.
When’s the last time you did something for the first time?
I can scratch off being in a music video on my bucket list. lol.
Doing wardrobe styling as an assistant I have been on set countless times for the Miami Heat Basketball team, Dwayne Wade, Adam Levine, Pitbull and Chris Brown videos, etc). I’ve never been on the other side as one of the “models” for the videos I’ve contributed to. I experienced difficulty with taking myself seriously with receiving directions on set; “walk sexy” be sexy “smile sexy”. I’m low key an awkward person, ya know? But thankfully I don’t look too awkward. haha.
ENJOY the video my intelligent blondes!!! Happy Friday. xoxo .
I’m Broke Because Of Books
Indeed. Story of my life. Like seriously, you know how people buy drinks for girls in bars? Why can’t people do that at books stores? Like if I’m looking at a novel in Barnes and Noble and some person walks up to me and strikes up a conversation and offers to buy the book for me there is a lot better chance of that working out in their favor. *shrugs* I’m just throwing that out into the universe.
your flaws aren’t flaws; you’re art.
the No Commission activation was a contemporary art fair experience curated by The Dean Collection to forge a direct link between artists’ practices and art patronage. Bacardi & Swizz Beatz presented the No Commission Art Fair and the Untameable House Party Concert fair which provided exhibition space at no cost and artists retain 100 percent of sales proceeds to aid studio development. AMAZING !!!
Wynwood is home for me. for the free, creative, entrepreneurs. i was comfortably fully clothed (besides my boobs being out) in my sheer top, full length quilted floral skirt and my ever ready patent leather chelsea boots. i would further define my outfit choice as untamed but not excessive.
Art Basel ; In 1970, three Basel gallerists put their passion and determination behind an ambitious vision to form an international art fair. Now, Art Basel stages the premier international art shows, providing platforms for galleries and artists from around the world.
The US show of Art Basel Miami, which began in 2002, takes place each December and marks the winter reunion for the international art world.
Felt good for my ego to be stroked a little, “are you a model?” are you one of the artist? “awesome shirt !” can I take your picture? “can I touch your hair?” you look amazing \ THANK YOU .
