It’s well known that when he couldn’t afford brushes, the emotionally tormented, often “freaky” Vincent Van Gogh made his own, with sticks and horsehair. Proving that if you’re a true “committed” artist or entrepreneur, NOTHING can stop the creative urge within from getting out. Actually, you have no choice. Like a raging, rushing river, the torrential flow of great ideas and vivid visions MUST forge its way through the rocky resistance of fear and doubt in order to ultimately arrive at the ocean of expression. Give up, and that river dams up somewhere deep within the dark, inner world of the artist—causing frustration, resentment, envy, anger, and too often, resignation. That said, as a freaky, genius artist; a crazy, risk-taking entrepreneur, we expect you to fully express your most outrageous inspiring works of art, and manifest your great, impossible ideas. In fact, it’s your responsibility, we’re depending on you to let loose, let go, and let your freak flag fly!

David Crosby wrote: “I feel like letting my freak flag fly” (1970 song “Almost Cut My Hair”)
Sarah Jessica Parker said: “I don’t judge others. I say if you feel good with what you’re doing, let your freak flag fly!”
