I’m going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life.

—Elsie de Wolfe (via wordsnquotes)

First week of 2nd term was stressful + new hair color, coffee brown.

Vincent Van Gogh used to eat yellow paint because he thought it would get the happiness inside him. Many people thought he was mad and stupid for doing so because the paint was toxic, never mind that it was obvious that eating paint couldn’t possible have any direct correlation to one’s happiness, but I never saw that. If you were so unhappy that even the maddest ideas could possible work, like painting the walls of your internal organs yellow, than you are going to do it. It’s really no different than falling in love or taking drugs. There is a greater risk of getting your heart broken or overdosing, but people still do it everyday because there was always that chance it could make things better. Everyone has their yellow paint.

Show Your Work!

Austin Kleon released another book called Show Your Work! And if you can remember, I shared some of my favorite pages from his previous book Steal Like An Artist about two years ago! I figured I should do the same for its sequel, since I think it’s a pretty useful guide for those who are ready to showcase their portfolio. :)
