Good artists copy, great artists steal.
- Pablo Picasso

Art by Lalu Aan

I hundred percent agree with that quote. But lately, I realize there is a missing piece in this quote. What is that?

If you just steal you lost your identity and it just a copy of what you steal. Great artists steal a good piece from what they inspired and mix it with their original idea.

When found inspiration don’t just copy it and make it similar. Learn from it and think about how to mix it with your own original style.

You can steal any ideas and inspiration but don’t forget to mix them with your own ideas. It makes you the great one.
