L-list #06

I've always wanted a Kay Bojesen monkey, and now I realise there's more, *swoon*!

An awesome free template, Paper City Paris! Some people are too cool and generous!

Great advice, which resonated greatly with me. I'm not sure when exactly but maybe in art school, that I became obsessed with this absurd idea of being original. However, all it did was hinder and frustrate me artistically as I tried not to steal but none of my ideas were sufficiently original or brilliant. But recently, as I was reflecting, it hit me that all my considered 'greatest artworks' were all ideas stolen, adapted, fused and/or merged. So perhaps my frozen artistic development is due to the ceasing of stealing and copying of other artist's works... and in order to rectify this wrong, I should come out with a copycat series where I copy works and steal ideas of inspiration art works to start growing again.
