My topic for the individual project is
“CREATE AN ILLUSTRATED INTERPRETATION OF A MUSICAL TRACK THAT IS EXPERIENCED BY THE VIEWER IN AN UNCONVENTIONAL AND PIONEERING WAY ”
My challenge is to choose a band or artist and create an illustrated response inspired by two of their tracks. In doing so, I’ll be facing this issue head on and demonstrating my vision of a brave new world for illustration in music.
Like balloons, we are filled with hopes and dreams. But over time a single sentence creeps into our lives. Don’t be stupid.
The world is full of smart people, doing all kind of smart things (with other smart people). That’s smart. Well, we’re with stupid.
Stupid is the relentless pursuit of a regret free life. Smart may have the brains. But stupid has the balls. The smart recognise things for how they are. The stupid see things for how they could be. Smart critiques. Stupid creates. The fact is if we didn’t have stupid thoughts, we’d have no interesting thoughts at all.
It’s not smart to take risks. It’s stupid. To be stupid is to be brave. The stupid aren’t afraid to fail. Why? Because they ain’t dumb. The stupid know there are worse things than failure like not even trying. Only the stupid can be truly brilliant.
So, be stupid.
