Creative Close-Up: Finding & Using Resources

6. 25. 18   When your an artist, a singer, songwriter, musician, or photographer you think that you’re at the pinnacle of your craft right? In other words, your at the top of your game and feel that you don’t need to further your craft. Not so. We all need fine tuning…kind of like going to the doctor and making sure our bodies are in great condition. Many creative people like to keep going with perfecting their craft. How in the world find and have the time to do it? There many resources, workshops, classes, conferences, you can even go online and find so many videos on painting, playing an instrument, taking photos, and on and on. For an artist like myself, I always try to keep my skills ongoing. I love learning new things and be creative you find ways of styling your artwork. You soon discover new techniques and ways of sketching, painting, watercolor. Same goes for musicians. Even photographers find techniques to create that perfect photo. I’m always on the lookout for …

Creative Close-Up: Reviving Your Creativity

May 30 / 17 There comes a time for every creative person…artist, writer, musician, or photographer, when our creative train makes an unexpected stop. For a writer, people call it writer’s block, an artist, I guess it’s artist’s block. Whatever it’s called, you reach a point where you’re just plain stuck. This is where it’s time to do a creative revival. How do you do that? Well, there are many things you can do. I can tell you how I managed to revive mine. Take a trip to a museum, a concert, art or music festival. This helps your brain to take in all the creativity that other people put out. You get inspired by how that artist created that piece of work, the story behind it, and why they created it. Musicians get inspired to write that great song. Going to a movie also revs up some creative juices. It takes a creative village to put a great film out there. A good trilogy always gives inspiration to some great ideas, right? A weekend …

Reflections: Don’t Give Up On Your Creativity

October 29 / 16 Morning! The end of October is already here and it’s time to reflect. I have a piece of wisdom to pass along to you. It’s not long, but you’ll feel inspired by it. For those of you who are traditional artists, musicians, filmmakers, graphic artists, writers, all forms of creativity, this is a subject I’m sure you have come across. We are creative types who follow to our own set of beats. We love to come up with ideas, we have visions, our ideas may not go along with regular folk, but that’s what makes us unique. Once the vision is set and place, all the i’s have been dotted and the t’s crossed, our vision is complete. We get the accolades, the congrats for the work we do, but there comes a time when we get ourselves in a rut. I call it Creator’s Block. This is when we plateau and have come across a fork in the road. We don’t know where to go or what to do next …
