One of my favorite things about establishing a daily creative practice focused soley on "exercising creative thinking" rather than on the "outcome", is that it allows me to do things just for the sake of doing them.

What I mean by this is that every time the random thou...

For the first 38 years of my life I used swear words in a limited way. And then Bertha, my brain injury, came along.

It is that season again everyone.   That season when I empty out my studio of my year long creative endeavours and our Philanthropic Creative Store flings it's doors open and you get to gift to one of two wonderful organization every time you buy art (La Gona...
