air and light and time and space

Gavin Aung Than, of Zen Pencils, does it again, this time giving his brilliant illustration treatment to the Charles Bukowski poem "air and light and time and space."

/via Brain Pickings , who had this to say:

His 1992 poem “air and light and time and space,” found in the altogether fantastic anthology The Last Night of the Earth Poems, is a poignant and soulful reminder that “inspiration is for amateurs” and grit is the real key to creativity — or, as Tchaikovsky famously put it, “a self-respecting artist must not fold his hands on the pretext that he is not in the mood..”

In other words? Fuck your muse.
