If you are one of those people who doesn't cross the finish line, you are missing out on the very gift of making things...you become the person you were meant to be.
Every work we make makes us
The most meaningful and memorable moments of my life were brought on by moments of full body terror, so maybe I should start paying attention to them.
The very nature of our work as creative people forces us to stand outside of the norm - to step away from the status quo.
You are robbing yourself of the greatest thrill of your life - the thrill of putting your creative work out into the world.
It's so easy to say that my boss won't let me when what we're really saying is no one gave me an effective place to hide.
Dear Tom Hanks, why do we exist?
Está bueno evaluar proyectos basándote en 3 cosas: Diversión, Dinero y Prestigio. Y sólo 1 de las 3 patitas puede ser débil.
If you find love in what you're doing - it's bunnys that are procreating. Hearts everywhere. Love, love, love, love, love. And the hearts are not just hearts. They are rainbow hearts. They are glittering. They are popping. Confetti comes out. You're showered in the shit. It's amazing.
Stop making excuses & start making stuff.

There is no longer ANYTHING for everyone
Robert Alton Harris was going to be the first guy killed in the gas chamber in 25 years in San Quentin. And for his last super he wanted Kentucky Fried Chicken and Pepsi. So my friend did a sketch and he painted in acrylic, I painted in spray paint…and then we put it up in downtown San Francisco. So is this graffiti? ‘Cuz here’s this really iconographic painting still life image. Or is it graffiti ‘cuz my friend is working in acrylics? Or is it graffiti ‘cuz we’re starting to show our stuff in galleries…and here it is outside?
I met this guy who was a lot like me…and he’s like, “You know what, man, you do a lot of stuff outside, I want to do stuff outside.” And I said, “You know what? For me, because I’m starting to use all these colors, it’s getting so technical I can’t do it in the middle of the night. I’m thinking about doing these panels and then mounting them outside.”
“Graffiti” comes from the Latin word “graphīre” which means “to scratch.” You can go to see where Alexander the Great conquered and all the way through Europe down to North Africa, everywhere he went he put his name. Tagging is not a new thing.
I came at what they called the Golden Era of graffiti in Oakland. In Fruitvale were these tracks that were about 2 miles long that people from all over the world would come paint at. Here is 1988,this is a picture of me, it has this text on it that says, “The world is my canvas, the canvas is my message, the message is my theory, the theory is my life.” That was me trying to be deep when I was 19.
In the military they give medals to people who are willing to sacrifice themselves so that others may gain. In business, we are willing to give bonuses to people who will sacrifice others so that we may gain.
