In this video, I give you a tour of my latest sketchbook and how I work portably, debunk a common myth about creativity, and somehow manage to include my recipe for vegan hot chocolate – something I find comforting when the weather turns cold.
This short film was created in the Fall of 2011, when I still lived in San Francisco, and just after I spontaneously chopped off my long dreadlocks.
I used to think I needed the perfect space to create.
I used to think I had to have my shit totally together to create.
Or at least feel like getting out of bed.
But nope. None of that turned out to be true. What was true: I had some limiting beliefs about creativity that needed unravelling and then letting go from my psyche.
The class mentioned in the video is Creative + Practice. Do join us!
In the years since creating that video, I’ve been creating online versions of my most popular workshops, so you can participate from your own home (In Bed) if that’s your fancy.
I’m broadcasting right from my bed, where I’ve been working for the past few days since coming back from Chicago.
Sorry, there’s no nudity. When I watched the movie back, I wondered if it was too John & Yoko. Since I’m clothed (and alone) it’s a different genre all together.
How about you? What solutions do you have to work without the “perfect” space?
What limiting beliefs do you have about your creativity?
