This is a great five minute video profile on Chuck Close reflecting on what he would say to his 14 year old self.  He is one of the greatest artists of his  generation and has overcome many obstacles in his life.  I receive many emails from artists all over the world asking about inspiration and being stuck creatively, and I respond with this quotes from Mr. Close:

“Inspiration is for amateurs. I just get to work.”
