similarities of art and writing

A Creative Life, fine art, food for thought, visual story, words and pictures, writing

I have always enjoyed the kinship between visual art and the written word.  Both disciplines similarly use plot, character and a story! As a way to develop my fine art designs i have actively read and studied creative writing (in addition to art, art techniques etc.) since college. So imagine my delight to find that I’m not the only one who thinks this way!  Check out this awesome article titled “The Writing of Art” by Ben Shattuck
