Charts show how history’s most brilliant people scheduled their days
Based on research from Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, Podio created beautiful charts that show how some of modern society’s greatest thinkers, writers, artists and philosophers spent their days.

Anytime it comes to art I’m always worried about making every detail “perfect” but what is perfect when it comes to style?
When can I accept imperfection as a perfection of my style? I suppose I need to discover the nature and composition of what my “style” is. What makes it, it. But then again, who’s to say that when I find the answer, that that is what I won’t endlessly strive for? That particular type of work.
I keep trying to have these ideals in my head of “style” and “perfection” and reaching a certain expectation I set for myself. All it’s doing is limiting me, whereas I could be experimenting and making my “mistakes” someone else’s “art”.
Why does there have to be a “right” and a “wrong” when it comes to ones own work, why can’t it simply “be”? I need to keep reminding myself this.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR ART LOOK NICE: Reference and Style
To all those artists out there dealing with artblocks, here are some tips for getting that mean art block out of the way using the power of references and how it can help in developing your style!
This is so true! And FUN! Play around with images you love. Practice colors and shapes and textures. Having a reference helps keep things real, and you add in YOU! It’s funny the kinds of things that artists reference, because the art sometimes looks completely different!
…and now I want to do a blog post about reference images I use for my abstract work, because it’s just so interesting to me!
