When Uncleweed is on tap for a speaking engagement I make sure not to miss it even though I’ve seen him do over a dozen talks in the years I’ve known him.
In fact, his F*ck Stats Make Art talk last year was so successful that he was asked to present it this year at SXSW.
Today he was talking about the process from idea to publication while sharing his personal journey surrounding his Letters from Russia series. I wasn’t live blogging his session as I wanted to pay attention and focus on his message, delivered as he stood before a packed while sporting a smoking jacket.
I did however jot down some of his quotes on Twitter and John Biehler snapped some photos so I’ll share those now.
“I came across a ticket that was $420 to Belize. I was like ‘BUY’ … I wonder where Belize is?”
“If any of you have read it, it’s a big long story and there’s a lot of war and a lot of peace…”
“If you snip the kite string will it soar higher? No it will tumble to the ground.”
“80% meditation, 10% execution, 10% inebriation.”
“What makes a work important is giving it an audience.”
