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 episode of Vesperisms is step 3 in my 4-part series on the *basic* artistic process I'm calling "The Pathway." We've been exploring how Perception becomes Thought, which becomes Speech, which manifests in an artistic Action.
Freedom of Speech is vital to the artist. You cannot predict or prescribe what an artist is going to *need* to say about the time in which he or she lives. Far from being a political consideration, freedom of speech is an artistic value that we must extend to all.
This week's Recommended Read: The Power of the Powerless, by Czech playwright, political dissident and eventual President, Vàclav Havel.
Vesperisms: The Art of Thinking for Yourself is the 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.
