Self Portrait With Embellishments
by Ryan Dull
These are the things you need to make art: Discipline, Opportunity, Inspiration.
Discipline begets Craft, Output, and Dispassionate Self-Criticism. I’ve had Discipline since I was eight years old.
Opportunity means that you can afford the time and the food and the ink required to make art. I’ve had Opportunity since I was a pair of star-crossed gametes.
I have never had Inspiration.
