I had a patch of self doubt not long ago which put me in a position to either keep at as a hobby or pursue my dream with it. Im pursuing my dream. After my bad patch I found this book. Honestly this is a good read for anyone that is having a bit of doubt in making it as an artist. It doesn't give answers but it does help you think. #Art&;Fear #book #artbook #DavidBayles #TedOrland #art

I can't even remember how many times I've read this book. I love it❤#artandfear #davidbayles #tedorland

✨🐰✨"to require perfection is to invite paralysis. The pattern is predictable: as you see error in what you have done, you steer your work toward what you imagine you can do perfectly. You cling ever more tightly to what you already know you can do — away from risk and exploration, and possibly further from the work of your heart. You find reasons to procrastinate, since to not work is to not make mistakes. Believing that artwork should be perfect, you gradually become convinced that you cannot make such work. (You are correct.) Sooner or later, since you cannot do what you are trying to do, you quit. And in one of those perverse little ironies of life, only the pattern itself achieves perfection — a perfect death spiral: you misdirect your work; you stall; you quit." #davidbayles #artandfear

"When you're lazy, your art is lazy. When you hesitate, it stands there staring, hands in pockets. But when you commit, it comes on like blazes." #davidbayles | I feel a blaze brewing ⚡️💥🔥

프랭크 로이드 라이트는 젊은 건축가들에게 초창기에 설계한 건물들에 담쟁이를 심으라고 조언했다. 시간이 지남에 따라 담쟁이가 자라 "젊은 시절의 경솔"을 덮어 버리도록 말이다. #artfear #davidbayles

"When you hold back, it holds back; when you hesitate, it stands there staring, hands in its pockets. But when you commit, it comes on like blazes." Commit it is!! #ArtandFear #davidbayles #artistslife

Maybe it’s sappy. But it’s 1:00 am and it’s true. Part of art is craft, but the heart is who you are. And in that way, everyone’s life is a work of art—wrought by the person who lives it.

A timely read.
.
Current personal issues hinder me with my own state of things but this one, as recommended by @semiskimmedmin in one of her YouTube videos, is a very comforting and incredibly relatable piece of literature.
.
I can only read it again and again.

At age ninety Frank Lloyd Wright was still designing, Imogen Cunningham still photographing, Stravinsky still composing, Picasso still painting. If I make it that far, I'm right there with them.

I recently worked on a project for TUI, where I spent a lot of time modelling, texturing and shading a photo real Halloween crab dancing on a beach! It took a lot of work trying to achieve the most realistic look possible. You can see some development shots above.

The news about Spain. Catalunya is having a hard time, it's been quite intense the last few weeks. Even though I've been living in London for the last 7 years I try to keep updated about my mother land, listening to local news stations.

What you reading / inspired by? *

I just finished 'Art & Fear' by David Bayles, which was a recomendation from a friend. I'm also reading 'Under Dome' by @stephenking. I'm crazy for science fiction and the need of embracing the dark side once in a while! I'm also about to start reading 'The Interpretation of Dreams' by Sigmund Freud.

“Art is a high calling – fears are coincidental. Coincidental, sneaky and disruptive, we might add, disguising themselves variously as laziness, resistance to deadlines, irritation with materials or surroundings, distraction over the achievements of others – indeed as anything that keeps you from giving your work your best shot. What separates artists from ex-artists is that those who challenge their fears, continue; those who don't, quit.” #artandfear #davidbayles #art #fear #inspiration #artists #challengeyourself

So what did I draw? In the end, life won out over plaster. A humming, headphone-bedecked, "David" over the replica dusty Davids. I came to meditate on the Renaissance, but my attention turned instead to my own time and people. To, precisely, one bearded art student drawing at 3:36 in the afternoon, in the V&A sculpture gallery, 46b.

Reading #art&;fear by #davidbayles and #tedorland. I like this book because it explains how I can turn my fear into a tool for creating more fulfilling art and Life Experiences.

"In art as well as science- the answers you get depend upon the questions you ask. Where the scientist asks what equation would best describe the trajectory of an airborne rock, the artist asks what it would feel like to throw one". #davidbayles #tedorlando #artandfear #morning #meditation #Tesla #contemporaryart #cattesla #fineart

current desk situation #wip The book to the left #artandfear was really influential in understanding a healthy psychology surrounding the creative process. I first read it a couple years ago and have thumbed through it many times since. My biggest takeaway is that the primary function of each individual piece of art we make is to prepare us for the next piece of art we make. In other words, the body of work we create over our lifetime represents a history of our practice...no single piece stands alone. So stop trying to make epic art, and just focus on making YOUR art, good or bad #staytruetoyou #keepitmovin #takeiteasy Thanks @marthatraer for recommending this gem! #artandfearbook #davidbayles #tedorland #philosophy #art #doyou

"In the end it all comes down to this: you have a choice (or more accurately a rolling tangle of choices) between giving your work your best shot and risking that it will not make you happy, or not giving it your best shot — and thereby guaranteeing that it will not make you happy. It becomes a choice between certainty and uncertainty. And curiously, uncertainty is the comforting choice."

Some deep Friday thoughts. #artandfear #davidbayles #tedorland




" #AngelaDuckworth,
author of Grit:
The Power of Passion
and Perseverance:

'"After you’ve discovered and developed interest in a particular area, you must devote yourself
to the sort of focused,
full-hearted,
challenge-exceeding-skill practice that leads to mastery.
You must zero in
on your weaknesses,
and you must do so
over and over
again, for hours a day,
week after month after year.'

"We all love shortcuts.
The allure of getting more 
by doing less 
is seductive.
But are there times
when doing more
equals more?
Absolutely.

"The classic illustration comes from @DavidBayles and
#TedOrland ’s @ArtandFear 
where a ceramics teacher
divided his class into two groups.

"The first was told
they’d be graded on quality.
The other, quantity.
To get an A,
the quantity group
was required
to produce
fifty pounds
of clay pots.
Not exactly
an artistically inspired
assignment.
And yet,
when grading time came, 'a curious fact emerged:
the works of highest quality 
were all produced by the group being graded for quantity.'

"What accounted for this
reversal of expectations?

"Easy:
while the quality group held back — laboring under perfectionism — the quantity group got busy.
They practiced.
And that’s good news.

"If greatness came down to passion — or worse, talent —
then it’d be reserved
for only a select few.

"Practice means
greatness is doable …
one tiny step after another."



-- Aaron Orendorff, “‘Follow your passion’
is wrong, here are
7 habits you need instead.”




“The function of the overwhelming majority of your artwork is simply to teach you how to make the small fraction of your artwork that soars. One of the basic and difficult lessons every artist must learn is that even the failed pieces are essential. X-rays of famous paintings reveal that even master artists sometimes made basic mid-course corrections (or deleted really dumb mistakes) by overpainting the still-wet canvas. The point is that you learn how to make your work by making your work, and a great many of the pieces you make along the way will never stand out as finished art. The best you can do is make art you care about — and lots of it!” - David Bayles & Ted Orland, Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking ...
This, right here. It's so easy to be crippled by perfectionism, by the desire to get our work right on the first try. We fight this non-stop, not only in our business endeavors but in our personal creative pursuits as well. But there is value in the sketches, scratches and stream-of-consciousness scribbles. We learn to do our work by doing the work. ....
How do you break out of the rut of perfectionism? .

You don't have to have all the answers. Just get started. Take action, no matter how big or small. #artandfear #davidbayles #tedorland

I felt sad to get to the end of the book. I've experienced that before, but this is a first, I think, for non-fiction! To read more follow the link to my blog on my profile page. #davidbayles #tedorland #art&;fear

Bought this in undergrad... only now is it relevant. #art&;fear

When you realize yourself through creating your artworks, dreadful fear comes to you. When life and art intermingle together, it's hard to tear off.
I can't do it, I can't do well, I can't do it again, I can't be a real artist, I can't be a great artist, I don't have talents, I have nothing to say. #artfear #davidbayles & #tedorland

"When you're lazy, your art is lazy. When you hesitate, it stands there staring, hands in pockets. But when you commit, it comes on like blazes." #davidbayles | I feel a blaze brewing ⚡️💥🔥

David Bayles, "Art and Fear". Highly recommended. Those fear manifestations are all familiar to me.
