This. THIS. Read this about sharing ideas.http://www.petershallard.com/why-telling-people-your-goals-is-a-fatal-mistake/
Somewhere deep down inside a part of me wishes someone told me this years ago.
One of my good friends knows how willing I am to share my next 'great' idea.
AUGH I feel INVIGORATED now.
Just you guys wait ...
READ THIS PART AFTER YOU READ THE ARTICLE
EDIT: I do want to say that you should be careful about holding your ideas in your head. Sometimes we as people are completely incapable of seeing glaring mistakes in our ideas. Every now and again it may not be harmful to share certain parts of ideas with other people and have them examine the idea. It is something I need to think on a bit further with this new revelation.
*Art Journal (Part 1: Introduction to Art)Note : I greatly appreciate anyone who has taken the time to skim through the following. I don't expect anyone to give this a thorough read as it's pretty long (~5,000 words for this part excluding external readings) and some sections may not apply to you as well, in fact I almost don't recommend it unless you really have the time for it.
Anyways, I hope in some way this journal and future parts will help out.
There are no excuses to not draw.
"... whatever excuse you have stuck in your head isn't true. Sometimes we get these absurd notions stuck in our head so hard that it seems like an insurmountable fact. Sometimes a friend tells us we can't do it. Sometimes our family members think its a waste of time. Sometimes complete strangers *redacted* on our artwork so hard we feel like complete losers. But none of them are right. YOU. CAN. DO. IT." -Shawn McCauley
