Because life’s too short

Because life’s too short

Watch the sunsets, smell the flowers. Smile at the world.
Life’s too short not to. After a while you’ll find that life is better simply because you’re taking the time to appreciate it.
It worked for me and I’m grumpy as fuck.

The flow of ideas – or how to be productive when lazy

The flow of ideas – or how to be productive when lazy

Often I have a really great idea but it flounders at the execution stage. It’s as if once the idea has been mapped out as a draft my creative self considers the need for the idea met. The result is a plethora of half born creations. I look at these and feel a bit guilty…all that thinking gone to waste.

Then there are times when I’m just messing around, trying to figure out techniques and the result is a complete illustration which can be rolled out as a finished design. Happy little accidents I call these. This week I had two of them.

Delighted that I was so very productive, I thought I would try to finish one of my other little projects. Not sure why that seemed more like work but there you are. I’m fickle. In the absence of other finished projects go check out my happy little accident here.

The start of a story

The start of a story

Haral listened to the drums beating in the harbour below the tower window. The sound from the Mesmer ships started up every evening at dusk and continued well into the night. Before him on the hardwood desk rested the letter from the Mesmer ambassador, opened and discarded. Another demand for more access to his court. He sighed. Their game was doomed before it had started. Bergen’s history was littered with upstarts and would-be heroes who sought to conquer the small island state. All of them gone now – absorbed into the country’s insatiable bowels. More

Illuminati / Illuminasty

Illuminati / Illuminasty

A friend of mine started a train of thought by poking fun at the whole Illuminati debate and added me to the new ‘Illuminati – Durban Branch’ facebook page. As is the case with this kind of thing, my mind started running and I couldn’t let our new branch be without a logo.

Once the logo was made more light bulbs lit up in my brain and the result was the Illuminati / Illuminasty design. It’s perfect for days when you can’t decide whether to be good or bad – you can flip it any way you like. Get yours today.

The secret handshake is not included.
