The following is a snippet from a really slamming list of cerebral topics from artist Graham Matthews and his blog Artpromotivate that the artist should consider when blogging. This list is, of course, not a make or break list, but whether one is just getting started in one’s career or putting the finishing touches on a period in one’s career, this list can be a valuable resource in shifting one’s creative inertia from one’s own representational work to the infrastructure girding it.
