15 minutes a week in my studio to develop your artistic worldview! Let's go deeper than quotable platitudes and explore the many facets of thinking like an artist in a complex world. Hosted by award-winning Author-Illustrator Vesper Stamper. Follow me on Instagram @vesperillustration.
This week, we’re going to do a deep dive into each of those principles, and for these next several episodes, we’re going to focus on the first principle: ARTISTS SEE. I lay out a pathway of artistic process that we need to understand fully.
Originally, I was going to do episode 4 on the topic of Freedom of Speech and Censorship. I’m deeply concerned about artists increasingly engaging in censorship, whether that’s self-censorship or calling for curtailments on others’ free speech. For me, it’s not a political question, even though that’s the realm through which most of us are encountering the issue right now in media. No—it’s a question of cutting the artist off at the knees, at the very time we are most needed by our culture.
This week's Recommended Read is My Name is Asher Lev, by Chaim Potok. It's one of my top 5 favorite novels, and it has everything to do with perception and timing.
Vesperisms: The Art of Thinking for Yourself, with host, author-illustrator Vesper Stamper, is your weekly 20 minute recalibration of your artistic worldview. It's a podcast to help you make sense of your place in this crazy world by reclaiming an artistic worldview. Everything around us is trying to push us into boxes, but that's not how artists' minds work. Let's get off that detour and back on the main road to thinking for ourselves: as artists.
