Each week we invite a designer to illustrate his or her favorite quotes by famous creatives. This week designer, illustrator, and animator Igor Bastidas created a series of what he calls “short stories” to bring these five quotes to life:

“The prerequisite of originality is the art of forgetting, at the proper moment, what we know.”
—Arthur Koestler

“Get in over your head as often and as joyfully as possible.”
—Alexander Isley

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
—Thomas Merton

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
—Albert Einstein

“If you have a great idea, it will tell you how to execute it.”
—Jack H. Summerford
