Yesterday I read this article and it really struck a chord with me. By using a neat metaphor about Finnish bus stations (yes, really), the article stresses the importance of having persistence when starting out in any creative discipline. This idea is boiled down into 5 words by Arno Minkkinen: ‘Stay On The F***ing Bus’. Strong words, yes, but strong sentiments also.
If you’re a fledgling creative (or know someone who is), I urge you to do two things:
1. Read the article.
2. Print out my doodle and stick it above your desk. (I already have.) I’ve uploaded an uncensored version after the jump in case you don’t like asterisks.
