Self-Care is important. Take breaks, do something rejuvenating. Whatever it is that re-energizes you so you can be more creative, productive and focused.
Enjoy the second part of Leah Jay’s 3 part series on creativity. Sometimes it’s all about getting out of your comfort zone and breaking the rules.
A couple of months ago we had the pleasure of interviewing artist and art teacher Russell Powell for upcoming issue of Content Magazine. Russell paints on his hand then stamps it onto a piece of paper. That might not sound very impressive until you see his beautifully detailed black and white paintings that are painted on an approximately 4”x4” surface that isn’t flat.
Ken Davis’ studio is covered with skateboard decks, shelves of records, and reference books as an ode to the tangible. He prefers to have these items as a reminder to slow down. None of his research is done online, preferring to hunt down a rare book instead of staring at a scan. But the extra effort shows in his work. His meticulous eye and dedication to doing things the right way at every stage of production are sure signs that clients are getting a quality product.

Getting creatively “stuck” is something that is so common among artists, it’s almost a cliché. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of books which address various aspects of creativity – developing it from nothing, bolstering your own latent creative potential, and getting out of a creative slump.
I’m curious about that spark of recognition we feel when there’s some truth we connect to in art. Sometimes I start with a photo or a thing and I learn about it as I go; sometimes I start with a concept and figure out how to find it in the world.
We are so excited to share that My Art Resources is sponsoring an artist studio residency in the Local Color pop up space. The studio residency was awarded to artist Francisco Ramirez.
