The artistic voice is an evolving part of being a creator.
It is neither static nor something we acquire all at once.
Rather, it is developed through practice, creation, and intersecting with work that inspires us.
Today’s episode continues our series on Austin Kleon’s book, Steal Like an Artist, by examining Chapter 2: Don't wait until you know who you are to get started.
By embracing the journey of becoming a better artist and learning from our role models’ processes, perspectives, and modes of creating, we can celebrate every stage of our own work as vital to our growth.
As the saying goes, “practice makes perfect!”
