Through Rose Coloured 3-D Glasses

I think we all have great ideas. Potentially, we can think of anything at anytime, and create a masterpiece. An idea, an invention, something to enhance the lives of people around us. The only thing stopping us is understanding the technology to support it. I play rhythm guitar. Sometimes I regret not learning to play violin or piano, cause I'm pretty sure I can create some bomb, bomb tunes. But I have a friend that created a really nice song with a keyboard, and doesn't even play some of the instruments used like the string section. Technological improvisation.We all have that epic musicality inside of us, waiting for the right tools to bust through the perceived monotony like a friggin canonball. That's why people say they can't draw. That's why I have some sort of complex about it too. everyone can draw, but when you compare yourselves too much to others, you think it isn't worth it. But when you start playing around with the tools they play with, all of a sudden you get these new ideas, new levels of creativity, "what if " situations start guiding you like a carrot on a string, showing you that certain seeds can reach fruition with enough patience and diligence. New(relatively) technologies can translate into new ideas. This sounds a lot headier than it really is, and I think because it's Sunday morning, I feel like writing something long, with maybe not that much substance to warrant it...but if you reached this far, maybe it wasn't as tedious as I thought it was :p Maybe I should train to be a novelist, right after I learn to use spell check. Oh, and I posted these two because I wasn't sure if the one with the blank background was too plain, or the one with the messy background, was too Ed Hardy ish.

I totally know what you mean man, I've trained myself to just absorb another artistic style and go with it and then see where I stand afterwards, continue or not continue.
I think it's always weird just drawing reference and style free every once in a while just to see where I'm at and it's usually somewhere pretty keen.
Ofcourse it's always like "wow, I could really do something with this, but not the something I want"
I think that's everyone's problem, I want to be Elvis, Elvis wanted to be Shazam, Shazam wanted to be Superman, Superman wanted to be Batman, Batman wanted to be Zorro, who wanted to be Robin Hood, Hercules, Zeus, God.
Madness right?
