Here’s just a taste to get us going….
It is as true to me as it was all those years ago. One foot in front in front of the other, the only obstacle is yourself.Juliius Thomas
Not bad so far huh? But there’s a lot more to come!
Below is Julius’ interview. It is one of the most profound and poetic expressions of an artist that I’ve heard in a long time.
What impressed me most is that he didn’t just name famous artists that he liked…he
explains how and why they influenced him.
Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, David Carson, Alan Watts, Will Smith and Joe Rogan to name a few
Each in their own way,
Dali taught me that the one thing out of my control is time and not to waste it.
Picasso to never give up on yourself even when others don’t see your vision.
Monet taught me about control, composition, and balance.
Pollock that something could be both chaotic and methodical.
Warhol taught me to believe in myself and that anyone could be an artist.
Carson to not takeJulius Thomas
myselfor graphic design too seriously and that rules were meant to be broken.
Alan watts taught me that each one of the men on this list battled with insecurity and identity crises. That Little old me is capable of a hell of a lot more than he gives himself credit for.
Will Smith and Joe Rohan have some of the greatest motivational speeches online that along with many other podcasts really changed my perspective for the better.
