I took this pic before I moved - it’s a small portion of the print features (newspapers, magazines & books) that my artists have been featured in over the years. The Source, New York Daily News, National Post, and lots more. There is still some life in it, but we’re all watching print media slowly die out and lose a lot of its relevance. It’s still nice to hold on to the memories but I think we all know blogs are the new print.
Amen. Props to Supastition for his ‘Nothing Like It' video.

The Sex & Cash Theory: The creative person basically has two kinds of jobs: One is the sexy, creative kind. Second is the kind that pays the bills. Sometimes the task in hand covers both bases, but not often. This tense duality will always play center stage. It will never be transcended. - Hugh MacLeod (‘Ignore Everybody’) #HonestLiving
The insightful Derek Sivers shares his perspective on inspiration & as usual, he is extremely on point:
…nothing is truly inspiring unless you apply it to your work. (“work” meaning your life’s output, whether creative, business, or personal.)
In other words, your work, itself, is the inspiration.
You may hear something or see something that gives you a new idea. But it’s only when you stop and think of your work through this new perspective, that you actually jump up and go turn the idea into reality. That’s the real inspiration that everyone is looking for!
The inspiration is not the receiving of information. The inspiration is applying what you’ve received.
People think that if they keep reading articles, browsing books, listening to talks, or meeting people, that they’re going to suddenly get inspired.
But constantly seeking inspiration is anti-inspiring. You have to pause the input, and focus on your output.
