Bad Stealing vs. Good Stealing

People use this quote from Pablo Picasso, Good artists copy; great artists steal.And the book, Steal Like an Artist, by Austin Kleon to justify their bad behavior.⁣

THIS IDEA IS TRUE
Our ideas are influenced by things we have seen, read, and experienced.⁣

THIS IDEA IS FALSE ⁣
Nothing is Original
Of course you can be original. ⁣
Of course you can be unique. ⁣
Of course you can be innovative.⁣⁣

THERE WAS NO PICASSO BEFORE PICASSO.⁣

Learning artists copy.
Cheating artists steal.
Good artists are influenced.⁣
Great artists research in an effort to differentiate as they create something new and original.⁣

Copy to learn, but don’t pass it off as your own.
Research for influence and then differentiate.
Be creative and original.⁣
Yes, you can.⁣

DON'T STEAL⁣
There is no good stealing...there is only stealing. And it isn't good. You're better than that.⁣⁣
