Day 1 of days to come in waking up SB! (Please refer to previous blog for full form :P)


What I failed to mention in my previous blog was that there is complexity in simplicity. If only things were really as simple as people say they were! How many of you tried Step 1 and failed miserably! *raising hand*

Don't worry! I still can't shut up that voice but what I can do is turn a deaf ear to it. It's your built in system of defense. So, either you stop listening to it or whatever the voice says you can't (creatively) change it to you can.

Start by picking up a pencil/pen today and scribble. Get your frustration out! Don't look for meaning or for form. Stop labeling it, stop defining it, let it just be a pure existence in space created by you.

Just scribble! Don't think. Definitely do not copy this :D

Once you are done scribbling, do not throw it away. Look at it with pride. You just created an 'Expressionistic' work of art!. Don't go 'Oh no! Here come the big words!!!' That's that voice of yours again. Ignore it!
Let me explain what it means:

Expressionism is an artistic style in which the artist attempts to depict not objective reality but rather the subjective emotions and responses that objects and events arouse in him.
Basically, it says that you paint what you feel rather than what you see. An apple need not look like an apple! Go on, look at your work. It is as meaningful as the emotions you felt during sketching. Save this piece of work. It's officially your first work of art! Be back soon.... on Day 2! ;)
