A Sophisticate is Creative

"Creativity is beauty found on the inside that is painted outside the lines of normality" Sophisticate in the Suburbs 

In the beginning when a child is really young, they color outside the lines of a coloring book. They are applauded for their effort because it is assumed they don’t have the dexterity to color inside the lines. Regardless of what is applauded there comes a point when a child wants to color inside the lines. They decide that coloring outside the lines looks messy. All of a sudden the goal is to color inside the lines to make what they are coloring beautiful.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" Pablo Picasso

For those children who play with Legos, they build crazy creations. Then, they destroy the structure to rebuild and create again. They are rewarded for the effort when they are younger even when they build something that is unexplainable. Then one day they find satisfaction in building of something that is functional. 

Whether a Sophisticate is an engineer or artist, success is achieved when something is created that is structurally functional or aesthetically beautiful. Sadly, there is no applause for building something that doesn’t exist or isn’t perfectly colored or matched. That is, until a Sophisticate is older when she becomes creative and considered talented.

Whether she is an artist (A Sophisticate is an Artist) or an Engineer (A Sophisticate is an Engineer) she is creative. The only difference between a Sophisticate who is an artist or engineer is the medium she utilizes to be creative.

A Sophisticate who is an Engineer uses mathematics like a Sophisticate who is an artist uses paint. In both instances she builds from nothing something that was never imagined before.

Creativity is organized chaos. Creativity is different from the norm, different from everything else. Similarly, a Sophisticate is not like everyone else in a good way.

Creativity is imperfection. Most Engineers like artists don't get it right the first time. It takes trial and error, a hypothesis before a final path can be mapped out or designed. Creativity may not appear beautiful until it's shaped into what it was meant to represent in the artists mind. In the end whatever imperfections or end result, it is beautiful to a Sophisticate who is the creator. 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that's all that matters. 

A Sophisticate is different and that is what makes her unique, it also makes her creative. Her creativity are her feelings, knowledge, intelligence, emotions, and thoughts on display for the world to see.  Her creativity is her lack of fear on display to show who she is as a person.

When a Sophisticate creates she colors outside the lines. In the end, a Sophisticate is creative because she is beautiful on the inside but to the outside world she may be considered different. She IS different, unique, special, and in the 21st Century, sophisticated. ;D
