If you haven’t subscribed to Creative People Are Weird yet, you should do so now. Today’s topic is one I’ve discussed before. I have a philosophy about the way Millenials engage with the world around them. It’s at the core of a lot of strange behaviors and I believe that creative people may often… Read more »
When I went to name this post, I was alerted to the fact that I had already written a post called “Creative Spaces.” It was about SND CYN, the co-working space Jasmine Star was using. How appropriate, then, that today’s #CreativePeopleAreWeird was recorded in Lakeland’s very own co-working space, Catapult. Don’t begrudge the creative that needs a very specific environment in which to create. It’s all in… Read more »
It only occurred to me recently that, during the recent re-design of my website, I left out one of my favorite projects from my portfolio. I joined a few friends in creating an environment for Every Last Detail‘s style dictionary. The venue, a century-old home under renovation, proved an excellent opportunity for me to make a point I had been wanting to make: Acrylic… Read more »
I’m not going to lie: I’ve needed this reminder more than once already this year. I am gonna make it through this year if it kills me.

Sure, it’s nice and I got a nice price, but I’ve always felt as though I was missing some sort of cutter mojo and so often, a… Read more »
I might have to duck after this one. Have you ever been subject to a “pain in the butt fee?” You may have without even knowing it. Some creatives have a dirty little secret to pricing. Do you? How do you feel about it? Please, tell me. I really want to know.
Shia LaBeouf’s been in the news lately for some rather odd behavior. Except I don’t think it’s all that odd. Welcome to the fourth installment of #CreativePeopleAreWeird, wherein we explore the Creative’s use of source material. What do you think? Is there such a thing as true creativity? How obfuscated does source material have to be in order to appear creative? Comment below or at Youtube.
In a few hours, I’m heading to the offices of my local United Way to participate in one of their Community Investment Teams. This is my second year participating and it’s one of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever done in my community. My team will get to know several of the educational services in our community through their applications and site visits and will provide funding recommendations… Read more »
Music Mondays: because life’s better with a soundtrack. If you knew me as a teenager, you knew Joy Electric. Some days I wonder how in the world I came to be obsessed with such a strange little one-man-band. Other days, it makes sense that I sought to love what I perceived as unloved from an early age. I knew every single lyric and had… Read more »
