The Steal Like An Artist Journal
Hey y’all,

Here are 10 things I thought were worth sharing this week: 
  1. Why is the first draft always perfect? Because it only has to exist.
  2. I really enjoyed Oliver Sacks’ memoir, On The Move. (My friends are reprinting his favorite t-shirt.)
  3. Before you respond, give it five minutes.
  4. How Jasper Johns said no. (See also: How to graciously say no to anyone.) 
  5. A John Cage-inspired flowchart.
  6. The saga continues: how I met world-class violinist Vijay Gupta.
  7. Eye candy: the GoPro that fell to Earth and the woodcuts of Felix Vallotton.
  8. Ear candy: Mitsuko Uchida playing Mozart, New Order’s “Thieves Like Us,” and Sasha Frere-Jones' Perfect Recordings.
  9. Kirby Ferguson has remastered his classic web series Everything Is A Remix.
  10. The Steal Like An Artist Journal is a few weeks away from being released—if you order your copy before October 6, my publisher will send you a free pen! (I'm doing an early stop in Chapel Hill this weekend. See more tour dates.)
