Dear Ben & Frank

Do you believe in inspiration or just doing it?

Ben SaysI’m not really sure what the difference is? I definitely believe in inspiration, and think it plays a role in everything I do as a creative person. If I find myself unsure of where to start I just draw whatever comes to mind first and go from there. It’s much easier to look at something and assess why it sucks than it is to try and do it brilliantly the first time.


Frank SaysBoth. Sometimes you get the kiss from God, and can make something wonderful in a jolt of inspiration. Other times, you just have to get started and let the process inspire you.
