IF - Wilderness


This week's Illustration Friday topic of Wilderness gave me the chance to illustrate one of my favorite quotes by Alan Alda. I only did the first half of the quote, but here it is in its entirety.

"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can't get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself."
--Alan Alda
