Where does creativity come from? Are people born naturally creative? I don’t believe so. I think creativity, like many things is more nurture than nature.Why? I guess my own creativity started as an escape in childhood and from reality of actual living. I guess I’m not the first person in the world to find life difficult sometimes and drawing the world and its people was my way, though not consciously, of studying the world objectively and with some detachment. I then found that this, was a whole world in itself, one of which I was in charge and that was almost completely limitless. And the creative process is like that, you start off at the beginning without necessarily knowing what is at the end.
Being creative allows you to see the world in a different way, it teaches you to be observant and intuitive and make connections between things where others would not.
Some others have said it better.
You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club. ~Jack London
To think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted. ~George Kneller
You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus. ~Mark Twain
