Don't bite the hand that feeds you...hard.
Channel your rebellion into creativity.
The author is dead. Challenge and change as you see fit. Other Artists will do the same to your work one day. Unless it’s shit
Your body is a temple, what kind of temple is up to you.
Identify the smell of bullshit early on in your career. Not everyone has your best interest at heart. It's Called the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture for a reason.
Feel inspired, but don’t steal from other artists. And if you take inspiration, learn to reference! It makes you credible and a fucking Academic. Our coattails are not for free rides.
It’s okay to fail, but not to give up on yourself. Success is different for everyone.
Strive to represent what’s underrepresented.
Do what you love and the money will follow. But open a savings account for those dry seasons. Even small amounts add up.
You don’t have to explain your art. / You don’t have to explain yourself unless you get arrested.
Surround yourself with a team of people who believe more in the collective than the individual.
The only limits are in your mind...and the budget...and the attitudes of the actors...and the setup… never mind. The limits are always there. Do it anyway.
Consume knowledge at every opportunity. Your hair is our food!
Every detail matters, When in doubt go Monochrome. Minimalism bitches.
Take risks with newcomers. You are in your position because someone took a chance on you! Keep doing that for others.
Our beliefs will change over time. Growth is a good thing.
