“The reality of a drawing ends up being different from what you originally wanted. The interesting stuff happens in transition. You have an idea in your head and once you put it on paper it comes out as something else. Now you put it back into your head and start twisting it again. The act of drawing, writing, film-making or even cooking is where fantasy hits reality and then it starts messing with that fantasy. This is how I come up with new things. It’s all about the process.” – Christoph Niemann, My Last Meal – Interview for The Monocle (Issue 125)
You have an idea – you try it out – and your idea hits reality. It comes out as something else.
Don’t get discouraged. Put it back into your head and start twisting it again.
This is how you’ll come up with new things.
It’s all about the process.
