Book notes on Steal like an artist (part 7/12)

 Chapter 7: Geography is no longer our master

  • Most art related fellowship is online these days
    • But since the time of this book, social media has totally changed from how it used to be. I’ll hold myself back from ranting, but it’s not a great place for artists these days.
  • Create your own inner world
    • People have always said I live in my own little world. Introvert for life!
  • Distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our mind has changed, and that changes everything.
    • You should leave home at least once.
    • I wrote in my notes for How to do Nothing by Jenny Odell: When we experience new things, as ideas of people and places become a palpable reality, our home no longer (at least temporarily) feels like the center of reality. That’s why it feels weird coming home after spending the night somewhere else.
  • Travel makes the world look new, making our brains work harder
  • Live and work around interesting people. They don’t necessarily have to be doing the same things as you.
    • It’s more interesting that way anyway. Everyone has a different story, something to teach, something to learn. You won't get that if you’re always hanging around the same people as yourself.
