Need to meditate on an inspirational quote when you wake up in the morning? Fear of paying your bills distracting you from your true creative potential? Has that dated inspirational poster in your office cubical faded like your hopes and dreams post graduating with your oh-so-lucrative "Art History" degree? Then this poster is for you! Kick yourself in the pants with this stunning reminder of the need to push past your fear of social constraints and step into your passion, courtesy of Hunter S. Thompson.
One-of-a-kind hand pulled silkscreen print, archival ink on 12.5 x 19 Kraft tone paper, signed, numbered, and titled.
You know what I tell myself everytime I write?
Faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.
I sit on my chair, and force myself to write… and keep writing, until I get to that point where it’s no longer the fear of mortage payments that’s driving me, ’till it’s no longer the thoughts of long days with empty stomachs forcing my fingers to glide over that keyboard – but instead, the thrill of writing one letter after the other, one word after the next, one sentence after the former… until I write for writing in itself.
It’s comparable to riding down a one way dead-end steep highway on a bike with no brakes. At first all you can think about is your death in the more than likely head-busting collision that’s about to happen. But pretty soon you realize that the road is infinitely long and infinitely steep – all you’re doing is gaining speed, and there’s no end in sight. Heck, you can probably ride this thing now with no arms.
And that’s when the fun starts.
