“Creativity Is Like Breathing”

We like to think that creative people who create a lot of things can just do it all the time, but comic book artist Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal reminds us in a new streak that creativity is not as sustainable as it might seem at first glance. outside.

Speaking about his recent work, Inman talks about the breaks that are necessary for work to be useful:

A friend once told me that creativity is like breathing. When you do something, you breathe out. But you can’t breathe out forever. In the end, you have to breathe. Otherwise, you will die.

That’s all to say, get away from what you’re working on. Come outside. Read a book outside of your area of ‚Äč‚Äčexpertise. Try a brand new project. In the end, you will feel better.
