500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #266 – Evita Peron

Evita Peron The History & The Influence: Confessions of a Plagiarist, sort of… This is one of those titles that just seems to fit.

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #265 – Golda Meir

Golda Meir The History & The Influence: Confessions of a Plagiarist, sort of… There’s a complementary expression of outer strength and feminine beauty.

The Ascent The History & The Influence: Confessions of a Plagiarist, sort of… According to my sketch notes, this was meant to be a conclusion piece for a series.

500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #261 – Emergence #1

Emergence #1 The History & The Influence: Confessions of a Plagiarist, sort of… Here he is, the first man to break free of his stony prison. Have I borrowed too liberal from Tolkien’s mythos with my own birth-of-man allegory? Perhaps, I see it more enjoyable to see a man born from solid stone, like his … Continue reading 500 Works of Art on the Road to Your Creativity #261 – Emergence #1
