Awesome Sauce Personified in a Presentation – Meet Austin Kleon

As I said in a previous post, the internet is big. Really big. Not as big as the Universe and stuff, but still pretty large. In this big internet
one person’s celebrity can be another’s complete unkown. This post drives that home for me as the subject, Austin Kleon, was unknown to me before today. However, he is not unknown to many on the web. I am now happy that I have joined this other group as Austin seems to ooze awesome sauce.

Check out this presentation, “How to Steal Like an Artist (And 9 Other Things Nobody Told me)” on his page to see what I mean. If this page does not inspire you to do something, anything, then you may need a check up. This is the most inspirational thing I have read in a while.

It is cool that this comes as I am in the process of breaking out of my self-imposed and not too bright exile from most things creative and awesome. It is funny how life tends to send you messages when you are ready and open to the ideas expressed within. Sort of like a convergence that happens. Sort of like an “Aha” moment, but bigger.

Of course, that idea of convergence, for lack of a better word, will be another post all together.

By the way, the 6th episode of RfL Animated Adventures is in preproduction and I am sending out a casting call for the role of a gym manager that will interview Lester for a job interview. If you are interested, drop me a line, or leave a comment.

I can work with anyone that has the ability to record the part. I can also work with you to get set up for recording.

Cheers,

Eban
