Here's an exercise for thinking creatively


How do you get better at thinking creatively?

The answer is how you get better at anything: practice.

But what does creative practice look like?

If creativity is your ability to come up with unique and valuable ideas, practicing creativity is doing that without the context of what makes them unique

When I say be creative, I don’t mean that you should all go and become great painters and great poets. I simply mean let your life be a painting, let your life be a poem.

This is so beautiful and true. There is so much pressure to be something other than just the lovely creation you naturally are.

Beginning of the face paint process for my ‘complete freedom’ art project. The idea behind it is seeing “into me”, so I was going to add words in between the teeth or something. Or colors in the eye sockets if I did the entire face, instead of black like a normal skull painting.
Should I just do the side of the mouth or go full face?
What should the addition be? Marker over the photograph and add bits of poetry or screenplay I have written? Is that too predictable?

Holy bujeebus. I’m in love with the left side. Lucifer needs a face  and shading on his horns, as well as minor details in his torso.My mini marching band is quite adorable as well.My boy and girl are coming along.I’m still not sure what to put in God/Zeus’ hand. Suggestions?
