hey so i am currently undergoing a creative block. any tips on how to be inspired?
Go to galleries by yourself and look at the artwork from really far away (as far away as you can get so your eyes go all squinty and things start to blur and you start to feel lightheaded because you are concentrating so hard). Then run to the piece and look at it SUPER CLOSE (so close that people have to move around you and you see every brushstroke, every dust particle and stare at the colours for so long that you could recreate them there on the spot).
Pick up a book and read from any page, then skip three pages ahead and read that then go to the very first page and read that then read the back cover. Highlight every word that makes you think a little bit more.
Be very serious about not taking things seriously.
Find a sharpie marker and write one words around the city. Only one word. Words that meant something to you or words that you don’t want to give up. Write meaningless words and nonsensical words.
Take your favourite pair of pants and wear them. Wear them until there are holes in the knees and rips along the pockets. Then rip them even more.
Never runaway, but always walk away.
Find a fountain and throw two pennies in it. Make one wish for yourself and a wish for a friend.
Draw things that make you feel uncomfortable, challenge yourself and accept that there will always be doubt.
do you get hate for not shaving your armpits? i really want to stop shaving but im kind of nervous about really mean remarks and what not
If you wanna do it, do it! It’s not harming anyone else, you are deciding on what you want to do with you’re body and that’s great. It’s like putting on make up or not putting on make up, just another decision :)
No ones said anything about it and if they did then they’re not worth my time.
