[ 1 min read ] Diary of an artist, Sunday, August 25, 2019 #673 (countdown) - Woke up 5:50 am. Too late to write a decent entry or post. Besides, I am putting finishing touches to my new book so I focused on that. Wrote an introduction. YouTube videos and... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Diary of an artist, Saturday, August 24, 2019 #674 (countdown) - Woke up 4:40 am. I think I have proven to everybody that one can take good photos with something which isn’t even a proper camera. I mean, the photos I sold recently were taken... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Friday, August 23, 2019 #675 (countdown) - Woke up 4:10 am. The day before yesterday was a big day for me. The sale of my photos finally happened. The whole thing took more time than I thought (damned expectations!) but at... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Thursday, August 22, 2019 #676 (countdown) - Woke up 4:50 am. Took two fantastic photos yesterday. I believe that believing in yourself, being proud of your work, honestly complimenting yourself on your work (doing it if you really like the work)... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Wednesday, August 21, 2019 #677 (countdown) - Woke up 4:15 am. Why am I writing this series about social media and relevance as a human being in the 21st century? Because certain people who are very successful on those platforms (or... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Diary of an artist, Tuesday, August 20, 2019 #678 (countdown) - Woke up 5:00 am. So am I saying that we can live without social media in this day and age? Yes, I believe that in the 21st century one can live without social media... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Diary of an artist, Monday, August 19, 2019 #679 (countdown) - Woke up 4:45 am. I believe that if you’re good at what you’re doing people will sooner or later notice it. And they will spread the message. It happened with so many writers, artists,... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Diary of an artist, Sunday, August 18, 2019 #680 (countdown) - Woke up 4:30 am. A few days ago I wanted to find out what TikTok is. I downloaded the app, signed up and started using it. I have watched couple dozen videos from different... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Saturday, August 17, 2019 #681 (countdown) - Woke up 4:30 am I want to write something about not believing what other people say. Not taking what they say for granted. Even (or especially) if they call themselves specialists, experts, have diplomas,... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] This whole series of my posts about reading books which I called “On being an ignoramus” (later I subtitled it “One crazy artist’s take on reading books in the 21st century”) was not intended to be a tirade against books, against reading them. It may... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I think one of the most important arguments in the society about the supremacy of books (and the flaws of the Internet) is that you can find a lot of bullshit online. Yes, there is good stuff, but there is also bullshit. And it’s probably... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] The thing is we’re super worried about people who don’t read. Or who don’t read “enough”. Or who don’t like to read. Why are we so worried about them? Because it’s in our heads that people who want enlightenment, or better quality of their lives,... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] I once believed that reading books is better than watching movies, YouTube videos, documentaries, listening to podcasts, and reading blogs, or Quora. That it’s the ultimate way of accumulating knowledge and gaining wisdom. I think I believed so because that’s what most educated people believe... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Oops I did it again. I did the unthinkable. In my yesterday’s post I questioned one of the most strongly established beliefs in the society. I questioned the belief that reading books is the best people who want to improve the quality of their lives... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Reading books is not as important as many people would think it is. Like I said, they believe it’s so super important because they’d been told that it’s so super important. They take most of what they’d been told for granted. We have the Internet... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] People often say that you need to read a lot because only reading can enlighten you. People who don’t read are considered by those who read (those who were always told how important reading is in a person’s life), by the well educated ones, by... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] People often pride themselves that they read so-and-so, or that they know the name of so-and-so. They know that it sounds good. That certain people (probably most — because we, almost all of us, have been brainwashed in the same fashion by the society) will... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Certain people will humiliate other people if they don’t know certain names. The great (universally revered) writers, philosophers, politicians, psychologists, etc. Or they will feel sorry for them — think how much worse off these people are, and how much better off they would be...

[ 3 min read ] The idea that I will miss out on something if I won’t read this or that (some author), or follow someone, or subscribe to someone’s channel, is flawed. It’s bullshit. People who had read (or read) this or that (something a famous person wrote —... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Sunday, August 4, 2019 #683 (countdown) - Woke up 5:30 am People who obsess about the idea of taking photos (about not doing any kind of post production) also create their own versions of reality. In other words, they also distort... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Saturday, August 3, 2019 #684 (countdown) - Woke up 4:20 am To me photography (my kind of photography — the photography which I like, the photography which I enjoy the most, the photography which I consider as an art) is about... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Friday, August 2, 2019 #685 (countdown) - Woke up 5:30 am I usually take my photos not thinking much about it. I just shoot (in an indiscriminate fashion, I would say). I see something and the decision to shoot it is... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] Diary of an artist, Wednesday, July 31, 2019 #686 (countdown) - Woke up 5:15 am If I censored myself, it would be stupid. I think those who censor themselves are the people who haven’t yet realized (maybe never will?) that the great minds, the icons,... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Diary of an artist, Monday, July 29, 2019 #687 (countdown) - Woke up 4:35 am I’m just as entitled to put out my shit as any other artist or writer, thinker, or … politician. Politicians are probably the best example. There is so much nonsense... Continue reading
