"The creative drive is encoded in human DNA. This instinct is key to the survival of our species, and has evolved as we have evolved through the making of stone-tools, to developing language, to producing major works of art. The symbiotic relationship between humans and creativity not only makes our survival possible,it makes it less boring."

" Creativity is creating something new. It often involves problem solving to make the solution work based on a set of constraints for an individual projects needs. Often these ideas/solutions come out of making unique & interesting connections between things or showing things in a new perspective."
" Creativity is the ability to generate an idea, either completely fresh or an interesting combination of existing concepts and the competence to have that idea executed and made real. "

"Honestly for a while I had trouble with answering the question of what creativity is,
I always thought there was a right and wrong answer.
Being labeled “creative” seemed like such a daunting task with a lot of unwanted pressure.
But recently I believe I have an understanding of what it means to me. Having this understanding has allowed me to openly express myself artistically and try new things without fear. To me creativity is the raw expression of yourself that allows you to connect with people on a subconscious level. It’s what you “see” rather than what you’re looking at."

More and more I feel creativity is a commitment to what you love. When the demons of doubt take over or whenever the stress of life and work bog you down and you feel like turning in, it's the moment you refuse to give it up that's when creativity happens. That commitment is akin to going to the gym or similar: you ache and you hate it and you want to thrown in the towel...but you head over there anyway and lift weights or run that last mile. It's the same in all creative pursuits. It's a privilege to do what you love, even in the little moments we have, so to cherish it is to commit to it. For it's in the sticking with it, and with all the energies and time invested, you do get so much back. And it does bring joy, even if it's fleeting.

"I often think of my creative process as two parts. It starts as spontaneous drawings. I draw whatever I have in my mind first, based on the concept of the project. This is more like doodling. After doing so for a while, I start looking at the drawing as a design. That means that I digest the drawing, simplify it, exaggerate, add things and so on. This second part of the process is carefully calculated and time consuming, compared to the spontaneous first part. At the same time, these two process are important to each other. If one is incomplete, then I will not be satisfied with the result of the design at the end. Everything I design goes through these phases, and I do enjoy both parts of the process in different ways."
