Today’s Quote – The Role of the Artist

james baldwin

The role of the artist is exactly the same as the role of the lover. If I love you, I have to make you conscious of the things you don’t see.

Bill-Bruford

Surprise, attack, understate, or overstate, but whatever you do, avoid the two cardinal sins of being either boring or predictable.

My Favourite Bands Lego-ized

legobeastieboys

This awesome project comes from the brilliant mind of Adly Syairi Ramly – go follow him on Twitter!

He’s created these for many, many bands, but find below a collection of the bands I love most from this project, made via little lego pieces. It’s always inspiring to see people find new creative ways to show their love for music (and nostalgic toys).

I’m hoping he will make versions of Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Fleetwood Mac, Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene.

If these were for sale in stores, I’d buy them.

chris ware

One of the most valuable things one of my art teachers said to me was, ‘Don’t get upset by criticism. Value the fact that at least someone noticed what you did.’
