Bring Popcorn #72515 in Series

On the subjects of motivation and creativity:

No. 1

A stop-animation with wisdom and advice for the artist who sells work, and 
There's a men's precious body part mentioned in this one, and a cuss or two...Consider yourself notified. 

Lynn Whipple on the Steps to Creativity. In her own inimitable style.

No. 2

No. 3. An idea that grew from something else. As most do.

Yukai Du, a London-based illustrator and animator, read Sherry Turkle’s Alone Together and was inspired to create this fantastic animated fable, “Way Out,” her MA graduation film.   

No. 4. Creative Year after Year after Year.

Herman Miller: The Picnic Posters of Steve Frykholm from Dress Code on Vimeo.
In 1970, a young Steve Frykholm arrived at the legendary Herman Miller Furniture Company.  There he created his own with a series of screen printed posters for the annual company picnic. Considered modern design classics, Steve's Picnic Posters are in the permanent collections of museums all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art. The video here also includes some of his sketches from over the 40 years of developing a new idea each year.

No. 5
Lynn Whipple again:  100 Bad Paintings.
"This is a great idea for anyone who is interested in creating anything! You are going to make "100 Bad Paintings" so you had better get started! This idea can be applied to whatever you are interested in! Have no fear! It is supposed to look a little iffy when you first start on a new tangent! No judgement, get going!!"

(One of the commenters asked, "Was this shot with a potato?" It's a bit better quality watched directly at YouTube, but not much. Still, worth it, methinks.)
