Think Like a Kid

One more thing following on from yesterday: punk isn’t the only area where its participants don’t care about putting on airs or carefully crafting extravagant works. Kids have the same mindset. They only want to draw, doesn’t matter much or at all that they have no idea how you’re supposed to make it. It’s “just do it” as a creative philosophy.

SOME KID CREATION PRINCIPLES

  • You do the best you can with the tools you have around you because you *need* to make some stuff. RIGHT NOW.
  • There’s no time to spend worrying you don’t make lovely robot hands—or form a Gsus4 chord—you let it flow out of you until it’s time for dinner.
  • Be proud of your stuff and hang it on the fridge. It’s something new in the world and you put it there.
