“Ignore Everybody”

May 28, 2010

I just finished (in one day!), Hugh MacLeod’s book, Ignore Everybody. It is the author’s personal journey and remarkings on the ‘keys to creativity’.  I really enjoyed his sound, sane, yet quirky perspective on being an artist, and just being a good human being.  He also draws some funky images on the back of business cards, which are quite intriguing.  You can check out his blog at http://www.gapingvoid.com.

A quote from the book:

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.  Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books of algebra, history, etc.  Being suddenly hit years later with the “creative bug” is just a wee voice telling you, “I’d like my crayons back, please.””

Nice…
