“Every Child is an artist, but the problem is how to remain a child once we grow up” Pablo Picasso.
You may have forgotten, quite an unfair world. You know the story of our artistic rise to masters was moulded by little things in and off the classroom environment. Half way down the line, we grew up. The sad thing about our growing up is not just our excessive grub for Money . No, its our forgetfulness, especially of where we are coming from.
If we can remember how far we came then we must not forget the little things that inspired us. Before we knew the names of the big artists and masters that we quote as a source of inspiration we had other little things that kept us going.
Plates: I can remember getting so drawn to ceramic plates because of the beautiful paintings inside. I would most times find myself redrawing and copying them. Its unfortunate that most of the new glass and ceramic plates have less or no painted drawings in them anymore.
Awake – I’m not a witness but I was drawn to copying images from that book. Especially of animals and people in Paradise.
Textbooks- illustrations on textbooks was a bomber, it did the magic.
Cars- oh yea. Cars got us rolling. Most times drawing the da** thing with 6 or 8 tires. I wonder why that has still never been invented.
There are other little Inspirations, and its relative to our unique experiences.
