Austin Kleon has some great advice on creativity, and following his first rule, I stole it (but check out more by clicking on the image):
Kleon is a generous artist, and I like that. I also like his art, called “Newspaper Blackout”. Armed with only a Sharpie, he creates poems by removing all the “unnecessary” words from articles in the newspaper (so that’s what newspapers are good for… ;)).
The real art of graphic design, photography, writing, life is not about adding elements, but taking them away to bring the piece to life.
“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” – Michelangelo
