Blog It Forward: We Could Be Heroes
I also get inspired by my friends and co-conspirators. I jump-started a project after the seed was planted by Matthew Sheret‘s Phonogram Vs. The Fans zine; even though that project is two months behind schedule, I received contributions to it from Matt, Julia Scheele, Katie West, Steele Tyler Filipek, Andey DeLesDernier, and a host of others. My friends make amazing things, and if I don’t make amazing things to, then I’m not living up to their standards.
Finally, I get inspired by love. Loving makes me want to do big, brave, bold, crazy, beautiful, stupid, exciting, romantic, artistic, cathartic, brilliant, funny, extraordinary things. Sometimes all at the same time.
Turns out it works even though I used to say no one ever wrote anything good when they were happy.
Inspiration is a funny thing. It has a way of striking when you don’t expect, and occasionally when you can’t use it. But getting it when you can’t use it is much better than never getting it at all.
