The Daily Habits Of Highly Creative People (Infographic)

Have you ever wondered how creative people do it, how they can make enough time in the day to eat, breathe, and make beautiful, lasting art?

Well, the answer is that there is no single answer. The folks at Info We Trust have developed an infographic to visualize the daily routines of 16 of history’s well-known artists and polymaths, from Milton to Angelou.
