This is my artist mantra. It describes the cycle I and many other artists I know go through, where we are happiest creating, and consume WAY TOO MUCH when we’re not.
It reminds me that while consumption of art is why I MAKE art, if I do not take what I have consumed myself and create through it, it does not matter. We exist in a participatory culture, and sharing what you find, adding your own thoughts, and maybe even going and creating some sort of content of your own is the point of life. It is for me, anyways.
Go out there, take what you love, and make it into something new for someone else to love.
