Weekly Inspiration #7: John Paul Caponigro & The Creative Process

John Paul Caponigro

Artist’s creations come out of far more than the activities in their primary medium. How the artist gets there is, perhaps, just as important as where they arrive. This is the creative process rather than the creative product.

John Paul Caponigro details the many aspects of his creative process — color, composition, drawing, iphoneography, writing and more. He shows how each discipline and different modes of operating with them contribute to the completion of finished works of art. The resulting synergy is stimulating, enriching, and enlivening. While he shows you that you already know how to write, draw, and photograph, he also shows you how these seemingly separate disciplines and creations combine dynamically to form a single creative process that results in a life’s work. He reveals that the creative process is a process of exploration, a journey of discovery that offers many insights along the way and never ends. You’ll be inspired to try these activities yourself, practicing them in your own ways for your own purposes, as you progress on your own creative journey.
