/ FIND WHAT DRIVES YOU.
I can’t say what drives you, but for me it’s music, it’s the feeling and power from music, the lyrics which express intricate feelings of someone or something in such a beautiful way. That inspires me, and it drives me to do more.
// DO IT OUT OF PASSION.
If it’s not done out of passion, it’s probably done out of necessity, that’s not what I’m talking about here, the art and design done out of passion, done for you and others so you can inspire each other. I firmly believe that work will truly be remarkable.
/// EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DONE.
Everything has been done, everything has been said before and made by someone, however, don’t let that stop you from giving them your vision, so tell them again, with your own words this time.
//// GIVE IT A REASON TO BE.
I’m a believer that nothing has an inherent meaning, but I love giving something a reason to be. Ask yourself why it is. It can be nothing, but still something. No meaning without meaning. No meaning is also meaning.
///// LET IT BE A RELEASE.
If anything, make your work and creations a release, a healthy way for you to express yourself. To get rid of negativity, of anxiety and depressive feelings. Make it something worthwhile to you.
I listened to Basement’s latest album ‘Beside Myself’ while making this.
