A few weeks ago I went to an art event at my school where the tickets had a quote on them which stuck with me. As an art student I constantly feel pressured to have the most innovative ideas with the most meaning; to come up with things no one has ever seen done before. It's hard, and most times impossible to do on the spot. I needed this reminder to just do what I love. This is why art is unlike anything else, because you are given the freedom to do what you want, which sometime includes messing up. It's all part of the fun, and it's important to remember to just enjoy the process.

"Don't try to be original. Just try to be good."
- Paul Rand


  1. Great quote!! Love the pics, too...did you take them??!!

  2. Thanks! Yes I did!

    So my parents' house has a lot of big trees surrounding, and they've been cutting them down for firewood, and I've asked them to save me a stump so I can try to make that gooorg tree stump side table!
