Creativity

“If you have one person you’re influenced by, everyone will say you’re the next whoever. But if you rip off a hundred people, everyone will say you’re so original!”
Gary Panter

Austin Kleon has come up with a brilliant blog entry entitled How To Steal Like An Artist (And 9 Other Things Nobody Told Me)
A collection of inspirational quotes and ideas just suited to getting the creative juices flowing... And basically saying what I've known for a while: If you're going to when you plagiarize, rip off from enough sources so that whatever you do appears to be original. Your fans will have great fun identifying your sources, assuming they can.
