Create What You Want to See

Creativity is one of those features that makes us unique in the animal kingdom.

But what IS creativity? Creativity is a remix. In Steal Like an Artist, Austin Kleon encourages people to make the stuff they want to see in the world. As he puts it:

“The manifesto is this: Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use—do the work you want to see done.”

Find the stuff you love and make more of it. If you’re an artist, find the art you love, see what was done, and imagine what would come next. Now make that stuff.

What’s next in your practice? Here’s mine.
