Austin Kleon has an inspirational book for writers and other artists called Steal Like An Artist, a New York Times bestseller. A friend, an acclaimed artist herself, thought I might find enjoy it and perhaps find some inspiration. It’s a winner.
On page 39 he lists why ALL theft is not good:
Good Theft vs Bad Theft
Steal from Many Steal from One
Remix Rip Off
“What a good artist understands is that nothing comes from nowhere. All creative work builds on what came before. Nothing is completely original,” says Kleon. He quotes from (Ecclesiastes 1:9): “There is nothing new under the sun.”
More on Kleon in later posts.
