Finding Your Personal Aesthetic by Tom Casaletto
Artists need to cope with fear, a great stifler of creativity; with inspiration, which may not be available; and with laziness too. We need to work, just doing something in the studio, not waiting for a brilliant idea to dawn.
But what if our work is really bad? There is no need for distress. Making bad art is just a step in the process. Honest self-criticism allows us to go from doing work that is bad, to work that is not as bad, and ending with work that is not bad at all: art, that is.
