A massive thanks to Marc Johns for adding his 3 words to the 3 Word Wisdom Project:

Follow Marc on TypePad
He also has a couple of books: Serious Drawings and I Made These Drawings for You.
Always Be Yourself.
“Sounds corny but goddamn it it’s true. It’s so easy to borrow other people’s styles and follow trends and try to do what everyone else is doing.
I am easily tempted to adopt themes and ideas from others, we all are. And no one creates in a vacuum, and we are the sum of all our influences. But in the end your work has to be from YOU, it has to be YOUR voice, because that’s what’ll make it stand out. Your perspective is unique and fascinating, if you let it come out.”
Thanks again Marc. You can check out all the 3 words contributors so far here: https://appottingjr.com/projects/3-word-wisdom/
