How to be Creative

Yesterday as I was leaving class, I remembered being in that same building as a anxious high school senior, toting around a big black portfolio to be reviewed by various art schools. I remembered tag-team waiting in line for three hours with my mother to speak to the Grand Wizard of Portfolio Reviews, the guy from Rhode Island School of Design, only to have him flip through my portfolio and say, "good ... no ... okay ... okay ... i don't think so ... good ... okay ..." I can't remember what exactly MICA had to say about my artwork at the time, but I know that on that day, when I was waiting in line with hundreds of other young artists, most of whom I thought for sure were more talented than me, I didn't think that I would be walking in and out of that marble building every week, a student of one of the top-ranked art schools in the country.

It makes me a little proud of myself.

Here's some great reading material by Hugh MacLeod: How to be Creative
