This is a required blog post for EVERYONE. There is no sketchbook alternative....sorry. For this blog post you will be using a fun online app called ReciteThis. I have included a link below. First, search to find a favorite quote that is somehow related to your blog topic. Once you find it, go to ReciteThis and type your quote in. Choose a layout for your quote, then hit "Create". Once you are happy with your image, you can download it to your computer, and finally upload it to your blog. After you insert your image into your blog post, explain in a few sentences why you like this quote or how it fits with your blog topic. Be sure to include "Who" you are quoting and what they did in your explanation (see my example below). Have fun with this!
Salvador Dali originally said this. He was a surrealist painter who was a pioneer in the concept of expressing subconscious "dreamlike" thought. At first his art was unappreciated and often times frowned upon. But like any great artist, he had ambition and pushed on. Yes, he obviously was creative, but without his ambition he would never have made it and we may have never gotten a chance to experience the art the emerged from this new movement of Surrealism. I think this quote can fit with any topic or profession. If you have the skill, but no motivation or ambition to pursue success, you may never reach it. On the other hand, if what you lack in skill you make up with ambition, you will go far.
