Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. -- Scott Adams, The Dilbert Principle

My students are struggling with their final drawing project. They have done two self-portraits and because the subject was themselves their drawings showed a strong improvement. They have been drawing rather blah still lives for the most part even though I keep insisting that they draw something they love or something symbolic of something they love. I want my skateboarding student to draw his vans and skateboard using dramatic skateboard perspective. I want my horse owners to draw stable tack and interior designers to find inspiring interiors. I hope they will find the right subjects to inspire them to integrate the techniques they've been practicing with inspiration and passion to tell a story with thier drawing.

One of the main problems I have with commercial creative practice (such as game development) is that mistakes are not understood and planned for in the schedule as part of the normal creative process. Not often enough, anyhow.

mistakes are keys to creative success! of course!
