If you think you’re bad, then you’re bad. If you think you’re good, then you’re good. For the artist, it’s just a matter of making the work.

—Andy Farkas

“Everybody needs to make their thing because being creative is part of who we are as people. We are creative beings. We have the capacity to create.

  

When we create it makes us more of who we are. It’s a part of our nature. It’s a part of who we are. Just like wolves howl at the moon we create, that’s what people do. If you don’t take the time to create then you’re missing a part of your existence.”  -Andy Farkas
