today i am sharing a quote [below]. you might want to google chuck close if you don't know anything about him. i chose his quote to go with this image. it would be a very nice way to address an envelope. you would need a chunky white paint marker. imagine it in landscape orientation. chuck close does a lot of giant head shots.
the lettering is by ian barnard
“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody
who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration
is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you
wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you
in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the
best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.
Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great
art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if
you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else
will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in
another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow
deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get
down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.”
