I Dance Badly so I Draw Weirdly!

I like dancing like a clumsy madman. It helps me create weird art!

If you do the "Random Vector" in public everyone will realize two things:

  1. You're an ironic hipster
  2. You can't control your muscles.

But something else is happening. The novelty of this new dance will kick your brain into hyper-focus super-creative mega-energy mode. Power level 50,000!!!!!

I've never tried to dance skillfully—especially in public.

Doing Things Differently

Being novel does make your brain more creative (temporarily.) So dance around like a fool... and make your peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a different order. It doesn't have to be weird or novel to everyone—just you.

My girlfriend Kristen giggles at me. I really do dance awkwardly while I paint and draw.
