Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination.
Devour films, music, books, paintings, poems, photographs, conversations, dreams, trees, architecture, street signs, clouds, light and shadows.
Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic.
Authenticity is invaluable.
Originality is non-existent.
Don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it.
Remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
I stole this from Paul Arden (although he stole it from Jim Jarmusch first)
