I saw this video last week on Julie's lovely site (Spaark - Artistically Afflicted)
and i just had to share for those of you who aren't familiar with Rex Ray.
Rex Ray. Artist. Collage lover. Designer extraordinaire. :-)
I love this guy.
This is for all of you out there
who ever feel like you're wasting time
when you're collaging or playing with paints.
Rex reminds us all
that playing is good.
That being creative is the essence of life itself.
That developing our own style
or body of work,
isn't always obvious or even necessary
and that the true pleasure
is the process itself.
He also reminded me that
there's room for everyone
and that we all see the world differently
and we should all embrace each others' views
and learn from one another
rather than compete and compare.
What works for one artist
may not work for another.
When i worked as a designer
for a large corporation
i often felt like a fish out of water.
i am not only working from home
- i am at home.
So let yourself be inspired by Rex
and take out those magazines
and spread them out everywhere
and use those scissors you love
to cut whatever your little heart desires
and play baby - play!
