On Creativity

Some wise words by an artist Danny Gregory about staying creative

 Keep making and stop critiquing. Don’t ask others’ opinions before you are at a solid solution. And think about how what you are doing matters to the world in some way, how your creativity solves problems or brings joy. Get out of your head and your own concerns and see how you can make a difference with your art. It’s just a drawing, you say? Well, what if drawing something can bring you peace? Or give you an insight you can share? What if that drawing stimulates your imagination so you can solve a problem that’s been vexing your family or your coworkers? What if that drawing is a way of honouring yourself, of investing in yourself, in freeing yourself… that’s more important than sparkling glasses. ( Danny Gregory )
