Loft Resumes Three words of advice for the young and ambitious 1.6k shares Share on Facebook Share on Twitter I have three words to change your life: create, big, and defy. Have you got three minutes? 1. Creating things is the secret path that lets you do whatever you want. How did I become a writer? Creating is also a way of extending yourself. Most people make the mistake of permanently exchanging their time for money, aka ‘employment’. 2. The thing no-one tells you about aiming big is that you pretty much always win. That doesn’t mean you get what you planned; in fact, that almost never happens. Say you aim to write a single Facebook status. If you keep doing this, eventually, something is going to work. 3. If you think the world is logical or fair, you’re going to be frustrated and sad most of your life. The world does, actually, make a lot of sense.

Unlocking the Mysteries of The Artistic Mind Consider the flightless fluffs of brown otherwise known as herring gull chicks. Since they're entirely dependent on their mothers for food, they're born with a powerful instinct. Whenever they see a bird beak, they frantically peck at it, begging for their favorite food: a regurgitated meal. But this reflex can be manipulated. Expose the chicks to a fake beak—say, a wooden stick with a red dot that looks like the one on the end of an adult herring gull's beak—and they peck vigorously at that, too. The Truth in the Lie In 1906, Pablo Picasso was determined to reinvent the portrait and push the boundaries of realism, and one of his early subjects was Gertrude Stein.

Outside of class (or if you have no class) you should focus on drawing in a sketchbook dedicated for life drawing/anatomy. Hope that gives you some insight!
