Let me entertain you!

The attention economy and our infinite appetite for distractions is the subject of a lovely RSA short and thought it was worth a share, and a rant! The talk is by James Williams from 2017 (the animation is new). The more I listened, the more I nodded.

How’s your mojo?

How’s your mojo?

We have had months of mojo mangling. Our boundaries between home and work have mingled. Is your mojo all fired up and ready for the rest of the year? … probably not. I’ve worked from my home studio for a long time, here are my tips to get your mojo on track 😉

Happy Birthday! (April Fool!)

It’s my birthday today, well one of them. I have a few on the internet. Sites that we sign up to quite often want us to give up our birthday. It comes in handy sometimes, restaurants, clothing retailers, perfume and skincare, anywhere that you might treat yourself...
How to take a creative leap

How to take a creative leap

We are all creative creatures, artists are compelled to be consistently creative. The rest of us will have an epiphany about something in our lives, that’s one reason why we go into business, to do something different, differently, better, or smarter. What’s not creative about that?
