Unnatural Talent

I’ve just finished my second listen to the book ‘Unnatural Talent’ by Jason Brubaker. It’s about producing comics in the digital age and it was an inspiring listen/read for me.
Some of his words towards the end were so striking that I wrote them down and they are not just applicable to the arts.
“Your secret formula is you are a unique person with a unique vision and perspective on life. If you can just tap into yourself, into your heart then your story and your approach will be unique and interesting…after all talent is not natural, you have to work hard at it. I’m glad it’s unnatural too. It means I can obtain whatever talent I want if I try hard enough”.
