Imagination is more important than knowledge. | Skillshare Projects



Imagination is more important than knowledge.

"Making things" is what I wish I do as a living. And when I think of creation and imagination - I think of this quote: "Imagination is more important than knowledge." For me it's prtty powerful - and also maybe it makes me feel better a bit about not being extremely knowledgable - because imagination - is more importand. Just like the mind of a child - the most creative of them all. Their imagination has no boundaries since they don't have all the knowledge yet. Sometimes what we know may stop us from pushing ourselves forward.

The first time I read "Harold and the Purple Crayon" to my kid - I fell in love with that concept. Imagination. Took him everywhere. The plot of the book is simple. 

The protagonist, Harold, is a curious four-year-old boy who, with his purple crayon, has the power to create a world of his own simply by drawing it.

Harold wants to go for a walk in the moonlight, but there is no moon, so he draws one. He has nowhere to walk, so he draws a path. He has many adventures looking for his room, and in the end he draws his own house and bed and goes to sleep.

These are images I gathered that made me think about the quote - not necessarily a mood board just yet. I have no directions yet as to the actual lettering part :)
