I love this idea on how one should practice being stupid with their art.
Sol Lewitt says:
You must practice being stupid, dumb, unthinking, empty. Then you will be able to DO… Try to do some BAD work — the worst you can think of and see what happens but mainly relax and let everything go to hell — you are not responsible for the world — you are only responsible for your work — so DO IT.
You first get in the routine of making art (writing, drawing, sculpting, whatever).
The point is that you develop a habit, a system.
This practice becomes a habit of work and a habit of quantity.
Then and only then (in the margins) should one worry about quality.
Kleon finishes the idea with this:
“Good” can be a stifling word, a word that makes you hesitate and stare at a blank page and second-guess yourself and throw stuff in the trash. What’s important is to get your hands moving and let the images come. Whether it’s good or bad is beside the point. Just make something.
