Art theory is like sex; it’s best to be in and out on the same day.
Mastery is a bridge you cross when you come to it. ‘If you say so, master.’
Self-confidence once lost; is twice difficult to recover. ‘Sounds like they don’t know which end the noise should come out from!’
Artists are rebels without a sound.
It doesn’t matter how the paint gets on the canvas, just that it does. ‘So far, I’ve just managed to get it on the floor, I’m working on it, though.’
Creativity can never run dry, but its inner workings do need to be understood.
Art never tells the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help us puke.
Life supplies just enough magic to make the art go around.
Creative activists chain themselves to their sketchbooks.
The subconscious is a vault where the artistic soul is held. ‘Ok, I think we will use the mother of all bombs on this one.’
Don’t worry that people are stealing your ideas; worry that you don’t have any.
