To consumers, art “things” magically appear. You watch them on your iPhone or have Amazon ship them to you or buy tickets to them. But to its creator, art is not a “thing,” it’s an act – an immersive process, requiring personal risk and exposure at every step. This is why there are more accountants than novelists – it’s scary to commit to your own creative vision. Much easier to prioritize something like making money, shopping or cleaning your office — again. In this preview of the book he’s now struggling to write, Steve Stockman defines the process this way: Art is ripping your guts out and putting them on the table.
You’ll learn:
• Why making art is miserable and painful and why people do it anyway (which is only sometimes because they’re totally unqualified for other work).
• How creating art is related to – but not the same as – the Creative Problem Solving process.
• And why discovering where disaster lurks is the secret to becoming the artist you want to be.
