steal like an artist

steal like an artist – Austin Kleon

newspaper black out poems
Tom Phillips
William Burrows

Nothing is completely original – everything is a mash up of previous experiences/work.
– Picasso ‘good artists copy, great artists steal’

Transformation is flattery – if you steal something, expand and transform it – because it is your work.
