It's a new year, which means we have a new year to imagine, to dream- to create! Sometimes, though, it can be challenging and overwhelming to get those creative juices flowing. When this happens, leaning on other creatives and intellectuals for perspective, motivation, and inspiration can help greatly.
Sometimes all it takes is a few words, a conviction, or a change of thought to route that creative path. I hope these quotes can help you shift your artistic drive and get revved up for a new year of art-making.
