Yesterday I discovered the wonderful world of Hugh MacLeod, the author of the million dollar download book, How To Be Creative.
This is such a cool book, I wish I had written it myself … but hats off to Hugh for listening to his doodles. Seriously. He discovered his cartoon on the back of a biz card idea while doodling on a bar napkin. Which just proves one thing. When we stop pushing to be creative and allow ourselves to BE creative, guess what? We are creative! Yes, it works.
The coolest thing about Hugh is that he made his book available for free, and in giving this, he received not only a whole ton of traffic to his blog, but a community, an audience, a people to write to, and he’s inspired so many others through using his voice in this unique way.
In the words of Carly Simon: nobody does it better.
You are free also to share this link How To Be Creative with as many folks as you like. Enjoy.
What are you doodling today, and what are you giving?
This was originally intended to be my painting blog, but now it's also about writing, what we ache for, and everything else important.
"Your paintings are like auragraphs. You pick up the information from the person and express it through art. However, they are on an altogether deeper level - not dealing with the outer projection of ourselves, not even with the spirit, but on a soul level. They are soul reflections".
