    If nothing is original there would be nothing at all. The art of the
    Lascaux Caves is original and this is where it all began.?

  2. Dan Hammonds says:

    That’s a lot of rambling to make a very basic point that most people know
    already.?

    *Steal Like an Artist** – Austin Kleon*

    I’m sure most of you have already seen this, but I just came across it this
    morning when seeing a post from +Rick Sammon referencing a book by Austin
    Kleon.

    After looking a little further into Austin, I saw he did a +TEDx a few
    years back about *stealing like an artist*; so of course, I had to watch
    it. I found it to be 11 minutes worth watching.

    While watching, there are references to some good quotes – the kind you
    write on a sticky-note to post to your computer monitor:
    – “Good artists copy; great artists steal” – Pablo Picasso
    – “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas” – Steve Jobs
    – “I’m more like a tasteful thief” – David Bowie
    – “You respect, but I love” – Igor Stravinsky

    *Have you stolen like artist?*

    Keith Richards and Mick Jagger cut up newspapers to come up with the lyrics
    for Casino Boogie when they were recording Exile on Main Street in France.
    I think Richards wrote that they had simply run out of ideas after doing so
    much recording, so they used the newspaper method.?

    Great talk !?

  8. Leander Scott Jr. says:

    this is a great book, read it and Ive been focused on being a greater
    artist every since.?

    “You ‘respect,’ but I love.”?

  10. Mike Schertenlieb says:

    ohhhh man, i LOVE the idea of “creative lineage”?

    Tarot cards?

  12. Sarah Johnson says:

    This provides some relief, in that now doing what I do, I feel more
    comfortable (less stressed) putting my work out there. Copyright laws are
    interesting though, aren’t they? They prevent artists from building on good
    ideas. Anyway, this is worth a watch.?

  13. Everett Elderberry says:

    Nothing is Original. I hate that saying. It’s bullsh*t.?

  14. EmperorLOL says:

    His book is worth reading 10 times.?

  15. MsGnor says:

    Thanks for sharing. There’s something about this presentation that really
    clicked. I especially like the idea of referencing the people that inspire
    us. It’s a great way to stay connected to our creative ancestors. So many
    clever people out there doing amazing things. A nice way to remind
    ourselves of their achievements, and also those from the dim and distant
    past.?

  16. Daniela Ravenous says:

    My ten-year artist’s block ended after reading Austin books. Awsome.?

  17. chakresh singh says:

    I don’t think he could really grasp what Picasso meant to say.?

  18. Alan Avery Art Company says:

    C.P. , Mr. Avery stated that Bob Rauschenberg was the first collage artist
    of his own photographs to be acknowledge and legitimized, not the first
    collage artist. ?

    Hello +Alan Avery Art Company ,

    Since art is international language, if you so believe, why have you only
    limited the audience to the idea of purchasing American art? Generalizing
    would have added open perspective to the true meaning of art.?

  21. Modern Benoni says:

    He says the internet is “your worst enemy”, yet I’m watching this on the
    internet. .?

  22. CaliforniaPickin says:

    I liked the presentation. But didnt Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Cornell and
    Robert Motherwell first pioneer and legitimize collage? Prior to
    Rauchenberg? How bout Picasso before them? Those artists are my heros.
    Dont get me wrong, I love RR. To me CORNELL was King of Collage! And of
    coarse BOXES , especially. ?
