David’s creative process is an act of subtractive creativity. He said that before he does any work, he wants to make sure that he is fully informed of the project that he is working on. After that, that is when the ideas start to flow. David doesn’t critique his work as he is going but instead does that afterwards to see what needs to be added/taken out. He also knows that the first idea that you come up with will not always be the best and to not give up because eventually you will get there. In the end you are left with “polished ideas” but the thing that makes David most proud are the calluses that are on his hands after a project.
For David Jones, I like that he admits he doesn’t have a creative process. Pretty much everyone goes in this cycle of fear of not coming up with something great but as that cycle goes around, in the end you will always come up with an idea. David isn’t saying that idea will be great, because you still need to sell it, but you still generate an idea. In the book it says, “self-doubt happens to the most successful of idea people” which I agree with because it happens with me all the time coming up with an idea to do for a project.
I could relate to Cal McAllister’s creative process with having a bunch of stuff happening at once and being able to multi-task. Personally I work best under pressure so as weird as it may seem, having more than one project actually makes me perform better. Also, it can sometimes help me creatively with coming up with new ideas.
Not to self promote haha but pinterest is a huge creative outlook not just for me but for millions of users. I could spend hours on pinterest repinning things! It helps me if I am stuck on a creative project for photo or finding that perfect recipe! Go check out my pinterest page and see what you think!
This is something definitely worth checking out!! I’m a huge fan of different font faces and how people can come up with different scripts. If you like font too, go look at this collection.
How crazy is it that there is now a service that will buy your groceries and have them deliver it to your door step. It is convenient if you are in a hurry but I mean come on… you can’t go to the store yourself? Right now they aren’t open in Dallas but I’m sure they will be making their way around here soon.
I found these photos really cool and something that would be fun to try and recreate! I am in love with the bold colors and how all the photos are set up perfectly.
I thought Friday’s class was really fun! While I did feel a bit awkward when we had to go around the room saying dirty words (haha) I still had a good time! In high school I took improv and with the girl coming into class, it made me miss that class! I also thought it was cool to see how people could come up with all sorts of ideas for the 3 items she brought into class that day. Overall, it was a fun experience!
I found this article to be interesting because you don’t find many people wanting to become a nun especially at the age of 30! I know I would never be able to do that in my lifetime.
