As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary of the Wooster Collective website. we asked a group of artists who we showcased in the beginnings of the website the following question:
What's the one thing that you learned in the last decade that you had wished someone had told you 10 years ago?
The following response comes from someone who we think the world of... Mysterious Al
"In that edge... Is where creation lives"
I can't believe it's been 10 years since the start of Wooster, which means it's been 12 years since I started out on the path I'm on today. In many ways the time has literally flown by. Drunken partying with Marker pens in the early 2000's... Wearing Dunks... Learning skills and making screen prints in the later years... And now finding myself in the position I am as an an artist today. It's a continual journey with a rough idea of where the end is but no map of how to get there.
I have as many regrets as I do fond memories of the last 10 years, but the best piece of advice I've ever seen given by anyone is Ice T's 'Fuck it' theory. 'Fuck it' gets you across that line. Push the limits. Take more risks."... Mysterious Al
