The Secret To The Entire Operation
Where all this actually comes from, and what it is really born out of, is the fact that when I have a problem I find a solution – no matter how complicated or difficult that may be.
Much of what I have now, the studio, the website, the whole operation – the secret to it all – is having a problem and finding a solution. The bit in between is whether you can be bothered to find it.
Me and Ady face this every single day. We come up against a problem, we find a solution.
You need to ask yourself “can I find a solution to my problem?” Think of it like a ladder. The problem is at the bottom and the solution is at the top.
Between the problem and the solution are a number of rungs and you’ve got to take steps to work your way from one end to the other. It might be five steps it might be fifty. It’s not about luck, it’s about figuring out the steps.
Stand on your own two feet
Be willing to solve your own problems. If you can’t raise the questions you can’t begin to solve the problems. Figure out what you need to do and do it. Change the way you behave. Change your attitude, change your approach.
You can change absolutely everything about your world, art-related or not, if you change your perspective and if you look at things differently. If you cannot identify the questions you need to ask and then go look for an answer then give up – but do not say “oh you’re so lucky” because my success has nothing to do with luck.
There is no-one bankrolling us. We don’t fall out of bed and into our studio, just slop a bit paint around and then go off to the pub for four hours. I wish. You have no idea the work that goes into it. Be absolutely fucking relentless with everything.
If you know what the questions are that you need to ask and you’re ready to start finding the solutions then by all means drop us an email and ask the question. But don’t ask us how we got lucky.
