Impress yourself: Artist and illustrator Trip Park
|Blues Traveler by Trip Park|
Artist and illustrator Trip Park has a philosophy from his advertising days that demands to be passed on.
Listen in on a tiny slice of an interview Julian Casanetti of Studio E Gallery conducted with Trip:
Julian: Is there anything specific you learned while in advertising that you apply regularly in your process?
Trip Park: To not get emotional or bogged down by what you’re doing; I take it one piece at a time and try to impress myself with each piece.
This advice is so timeless in its applicability it feels eternal.
What I admire most about this response is the zen two-step of it.
First — Don’t become burdened by what you’re trying to create.
Second — Forget externals, impress yourself!
Said another way: Create without attachment; thrill yourself.
If you can create with a light heart . . . and if you can inspire yourself . . . then you’re on the path of creativity. Once you’ve stepped on that path, the adventure will unfold on its own accord.
