There are no good artists, there are no bad artists. There are just those who really do it.
College Art Teacher
“I think back to an art teacher I had when I was in college and I quote him often. He said to me one day, ‘Anodea, there are no good artists, there are no bad artists. There are just those who really do it.’ In other words, if you’re drawing a hand, you really draw the hand. You don’t just make five little bumps. You draw the fingernail. You look up in an anatomy book what it’s like. I realized that applies to everything, whether you’re doing yoga, cooking, writing a book, or building a house. No matter what you’re doing, you can pretend to do it or you can really do it. If I’m writing a book, I really have to do the research; I really have to study writing; I have to really do it. I can’t play at it. So, whatever you’re really doing, you can become good at. That’s the difference between mediocrity and genius. “
