How to Steal like an Artist?

Steal Like An Artist
Picasso said: “Good Artists Copy; Great Artists Steal”.
This controversial quote is more relevant than ever in today’s design industry. We now live in a world where the majority of things we need to survive have already been invented or designed. And no, you don’t really need that iPad.
Fortunately, there is a lot more to this quote than “stealing” art. If we dive deeper into the thinking behind the quote, as Austin Kleon did in his book: How To Steal like an Artist, we find ourselves navigating the waters of creativity, ideas and everything else in between.

The problem with such books is that they tend to be a rehash of existing concepts. But after glancing at the excerpts above, I find myself agreeing with a lot of Austin’s insights. Inspirational stuff. Check it out at Amazon of via your iBook store.
