Yesterday, I referred to Austin Kleon as a creative touchstone.
Above is a page of his book Show Your Work, condensed by way of a blackout poem, a technique he uses and unabashedly ‘stole’. [See his book Steal Like An Artist.] The first draft of the blackout poem was a mess and I later posted a cleaner version, but at that moment an hour ago, I wanted to get something out there. So I thought, ‘What the hey?’ [should it be ‘What the hay’?…and does it or does it not need a question mark? We creative retirees…such a tortured bunch.]
Thanks for reading and stay vigilant for opportunities to stretch your thinking.
