I’ve been really into Grimes lately. Not only is her newest album, Art Angels, one of my favorite albums of 2015, I’ve been digging her style and creative direction, as explained through a series of interviews and mini-documentaries. In the video above, it’s apparent that she does a lot of the work herself (including the illustrations on her albums). I love learning more about her process, and how she is pretty damn defiant and self-motivated to define her own image and work. In the interview, she portrays herself with a combination of talent, innovation, mania, and geekiness — things I’m starting to associate with the level of genius. How can I be more like that? Like, an artist?
