The B&E Podcast #133
“Why to Trust Your Sensibilities As An Artist”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
You know all about that creative process stuff, so do we. There’s a lot that can get in the way of creating meaningful work — mostly ourselves. We talk about perfectionism, doing something we’ve never done before and keeping things simple. All this and way more.
POINT #1: “TO BOLDLY GO”
– Sometimes as artists, we may find ourselves in a creative situation that we have never encountered before. This is often grounds for our egos to step in and try and handle the situation. This is the last thing you want to do. Take a breath and draw upon what experience you have.
POINT #2: “IT’S SIMPLER THAN YOU’RE MAKING IT”
– We often overcomplicate our new endeavors and inspirations with ideas of what it should be or what else is out there. When you connect to yourself, your emotions and what you genuinely want to communicate, everything gets clear.
POINT #3: “SENSIBILITY AND TECHNIQUE”
– As artists, it’s important that we immerse ourselves in technical aspects of our craft but we must always return to what matters most in creation. This shifts technique into sensibilities which are malleable and optional.
