Our first assignment for class was to collage the theme "On the Road." I decided to illustrate our weekend day trips from Brooklyn to the beach. Working on this piece made me realize I have to read 'The War of Art' again. For an artist there's nothing like trying something brand new and uncomfortable to bring on the resistance and the gremlins. I wasn't happy with how the piece was going, my hands felt too clumsy, I had a better idea, I should be doing something more serious, and on and on. Don't those gremlins ever get tired? But as I learned from 'The War of Art' the only way to battle the gremlins is to press on. You'll make a mess, you wont like it, you might hate it, and you wont be smiling, but you have to press on.
