A Large Part Of Being An Artist Is Being Delusional

- - Blog News

What drives me to be an artist, to make the work I do and I think that a large part of being an artist is being delusional. You have to be totally delusional and slightly narcissistic. You have to be delusional to think that you’re going to think up stuff and people are going to be interested in it.

    Does this quote make me totally delusional or just slightly narcissistic as I didn’t make it up but I do seem interested in it though.

  2. This is true for anyone who creates. I’ve always said Engineers need a bit of hubris: “so you wana go to the moon… hmm, yeah ok. Let me put something together”
    It’s true when releasing a product too.
