When trying to figure out what type of blog I wanted to do, I realized that I am very interested in the creative process. How do painters,architects, designers, composers, musicians, and other creative people come up with ideas and how do they development them into successful completed projects? How do they structure their day, plan projects, develop ideas, and follow through on them?

So I thought I would do a little research, see what I could find out about how some of the greatest artists and intellectuals do their work. Each post will be devoted to a different figure in the arts, thought, and sciences, either historical or contemporary, and will try to delineate how and why they do what they do or did what they did.

Hopefully these little portraits will be as interesting to others as they are to me and  perhaps even inspirational in helping with creative projects.
