Nothing is Original, Adele and PPF


I found Austin Kleon through IF blog past Monday. Just click on the picture above to take you there. I love this post. :)

“Where do you get your ideas?”
“I steal them.”

Nothing is original. It says it right there in the Bible.

Fake it ‘til you make it.

And I think I might have an Impostor syndrome. :))

Monday was a weird day. For one it was Easter. Happy Easter btw! :) And the other thing was I was listening to Adele for the whole second half of the day. The same song over and over again. And lucky you, you get to hear it, too. :) And not only that, you get to read the lyrics and see my sketch of Adele. :) That's for PPF this week.



Lyrics - Someone like you:
*
I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it,
I had hoped you'd see my face,
And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over,

Never mind, I'll find someone like you,
I wish nothing but the best for you, too,
Don't forget me, I beg,
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love,
But sometimes it hurts instead,"
*

  5. Great drawing. My instructor said to go ahead while you are learning and copy other artists, as this is how you can learn a lot. I do that sometime, just for my own, not to sell.

  13. You are so right...nothing is original!! I know of an artist who wrote a book on how to do her type of art, then got upset because she said everyone was copying her! Turns out she copied other artists to find her style! She even posted a note on her blog saying how bad it is to copy her! Can you believe that? Love your post today as well as your art. Thanks for sharing! Happy PPF! :-)

  22. I'd never heard of her, so thank you!

  23. agreed - nothing is original or new. people get very upset when they think you've 'stolen' their idea - but if they were truthful, and didn't tell lies then they would have to admit that originally they got their idea from something that they admired. and that is how it works -
