once upon a dreamSo you wanna play with magic? You should know what you're falling for. Baby do you dare to do this? Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse. Are you ready for a perfect storm. Cause once you’re mine, there’s no going back.
If you think good work is somehow synonymous with perfect work, you are headed for big trouble. Art is human; error is human; ergo, art is error. Inevitably, your work will be flawed. Why? Because you’re a human being, and only human beings, warts and all, make art. Without warts it is not clear what you would be, but clearly you wouldn’t be one of us.
From Art & Fear, by David Bayles and Ted Orland
I would highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with their art.
