Who is John R. Early
I have been asked who I am, and I usually proudly reply “I am an artist”. I have been asked what I do and surprisingly the answer is the same. I believe that art has the ability to change lives, so I try to approach design as an artist. The beauty is in the details. Ever look at something and say “wow who would think to do that?” I try to add that to every project I do. One of my favorite quotes about creativity is from the late Steve Jobs “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, the just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” Experience is something that is gained every day simply by living. I have spent about the last 40 years looking at the world around me and putting those things together that seem obvious to me. I have been able to meet, work with, and learn from some amazing artists, teachers and mentors and from each of them I got similar advice; “keep learning, keep doing, and keep sharing.” I live my artistic life outside the box as much as I possibly can because it allows me to do what I was born to do; create. Technique can be taught, theory can be taught, but creativity lives in who I am
