Enough analysis. More submissiveness. Or rather submissionissiveness (turn something in, show us something you did). This is Morning Page type shit, not highly finished works. Doodles and sketchy stuff. We don’t need a critique from you on the messiness or unfinished quality of the stuff submitted. Morning Pages is just stuff that came off your hand rather carelessly or cavalierly one fine morning.
It could be writing, it could be writing and doodles, it could be relatively fully realized art or writing in some cases, but, the point is we don’t need to judge anything here from the viewpoint of finished or highly realized works.
Why? Because that tends to get in the way of people wanting to submit any of that stuff in the first place.
Morning Pages is an activity that was originally designed for blocked artists of all varieties (writers, painters, musicians, dancers, directors).
It also works for INFJs me thinks because of the necessity of engaging Fe auxiliary expression.
Anyway, all I’m saying is that I don’t want to get too analytical or judgmental here about THE TECHNIQUE of the art or writing that is submitted.
Most art of any kind in its infancy is MESSY and SIMPLE.
And I am an artist, so I do know.
Point is that this here Morning Pages thing ain’t about anything beyond stream-of-consciousness emergence in the form of writing (words typically, but, it can be pictures too). It can be be whatever came out onto the page in that moment.
So, please don’t get into a whole INFJ analytical thing here. Enough analysis.
And just for the record, an INFJ can create fully realized works of visual art or design. Same as any artist with the training and experience.
Want an example of a colorful INFJ visual artist? Try Basquiat.
Also, I want to say something else about visual art too. Many people in this day and age worship at the alter of realistic art as if that is the true end goal of all drawing or painting - to be able to depict realistically some subject, object, or scene.
Now, I can do that personally. I can draw realistically, but, it isn’t my favorite thing to do with visual art. Personally, I like doodle art. Or strange symbolic art. Or funny art.
And art DOES NOT have to be complex, highly technical, or elaborate to be good art.
Some very fine INFJ visual artists: Amadeo Modigliani, Paul Klee (kind of like abstract doodles brought to a more finished state. Awesome.) and Egon Schiele.
An INFJ artist can be monochromatic on up into extreme color…ah, to hell with it…
What I’m trying to say is that Morning Pages ain’t about any of that. And since you mentioned me personally, I will state for the record (whether I’m an instance of INFJ or not) that I can draw extremely colorfully. Sometimes and when I’m in the mood.
The stuff I’ve submitted herein is when I had an ink pen and was doing writing in a notebook. That stuff is what emerged while I was writing. Take it on that basis.
If you want to see my fully realized paintings, they’re hanging in the Louvre right now baby!
Love it! To see Azep0emtrion in all his unsheathed glory! Ha ha! (Sorry, don’t know how to do that 0 symbol with the line across it). I could totally see turning that into a series of some sort. Hell, I’m already curious about the continued saga of Azep0emetrion. All the characters are great. I get the idea that you’re trying to convey with THE SIMPLICITY (See Wendy!) of means that you used to convey it.
Alright, more submissions people. Keep it simple, messy, and however the fuck it came out of your mind and onto your page.
Also, make sure it is something you feel comfortable submitting. You don’t have to reveal your darkest secrets or inadequacies, just whatever you want to share that is Morning Page-ish.
This is not a writing or art competition. It ain’t like that. Yo.
