Guiding Principle

I think that the best guide that an artistic creator can have is always, at the outset, themselves. To simply make the art that they want to see / hear / eat / experience is the first step in creating work that is impactful and lasting. The challenge becomes following that instinct through the creative process in the face of many sources of resistance that seek to derail that trajectory. But what fun would it all be without the challenge of fighting those resistors?? - jB
