Sometimes life is scary

A while back I read Art & Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland. It’s another one of those productivity books but geared toward creative types.

Unlike the other books I’ve read like this, I found Art & Fear to actually be useful. It really provided a wonderful perspective into another person’s creative process and also brought home the notion that other people are afraid when they create, too.

Seriously, having a professional artist tell me that he gets scared to show people a new painting or to even start a new work because of how people might judge him made a lot of difference.

Realizing that it isn’t just me makes all the difference.
