What you say no to, is just as formative as what you agree to absorbing into your art.
But for most people, everything feels a little like a “why not?”
Because, precisely, why not?
Bland artists are also the ones that never got out of “why not?”
If you don’t know whether something is you, just ask yourself this question.
Would you be happy for history to remember you by this particular attribute forever?
If the answer is no, then the answer is not why not.
It’s fuck no.
