Artist Myth #8b: Your Art is Totally Original

Myth Eight: Your art is totally original

In his book, On the Road, Jack Kerouac said it best when it comes to artists and their sense of originality. Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
