a creative morning

It's Family Day in Alberta, and the kids create some collages with images from their current favourite "worlds"... those of Star Wars and My Little Pony. All I did was collect digital pictures and print them off. Unlike my own tendency to endlessly ruminate and deliberate and plan and agonize, the kids knew exactly what they wanted to do with the images and simply ran with their visions to create their spaceship story book and an Equestria Girls journal. I can't help but wonder how I can recover this uncluttered creative process again as an adult...

A weekend at Break Forth 2015

This year's Break Forth Conference took place at a new venue: the Northlands Expo Centre. This also meant a new format, in which there were no break-out classes, and all sessions took place in the same large hall, presenting plenty of opportunities for soaking in the worshipful atmosphere by sketching the crowds (and on a different level, to take on the challenge of drawing in dim lighting conditions).
