“The ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups.
All those on the left side of the studio, he said, would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right solely on its quality.
His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the “quantity” group: 50 pounds of pots rated an “A”, 40 pounds a “B”, and so on.
Those being graded on “quality”, however, needed to produce only one pot — albeit a perfect one — to get an “A”.
Well, came grading time and a curious fact emerged: the works of highest quality were all produced by the group being graded for quantity.
It seems that while the “quantity” group was busily churning out piles of work-and learning from their mistakes — the “quality” group had sat theorizing about perfection, and in the end had little more to show for their efforts than grandiose theories and a pile of dead clay.”

Art and Fear- David Bayles and Ted Orland (via qweety)

Perfection is intimidating.  I think most artists blocks come from the fear of creating something imperfect.

do you ever drop something and instead of picking it back up you just stare at on the ground and think about what a failure you are

this happened to me one time with a penny in the hallways of high school and as i slowly bent down to pick it up my backpack unbalanced me and i fell over and lay there until someone rescued me

So my friend is fabulous at drawing and is even MORE fabulous for putting up with me.

A while ago I was annoying her about her drawing me like one of her french girls and this is what she finally came up with.

It is now my desktop.
