Because I'm pretty sure nobody reads these posts, I decided to use Brian Eno as my artist for the week. It's totally legit. He's a recording artist by fame, but he and British painter Peter Schmidt developed "Oblique Strategies" together as well. A discovery I felt was important to my artistic efforts. Oblique Strategies is a deck of cards with reminders of how to overcome artist's block and get the creative process flowing. And they can be applied to any medium across the artistic spectrum. They are sometimes as simple as "use a different tool" or as challenging as "destroy the most important thing." Either way, they are designed to pull you away from a typical approach to your art and encourage growth as an artist. It's totally rad.
