“if you stuff yourself full of poems, essays, plays, stories, novels, films, comic strips, magazines, and music, you will automatically explode every morning like old faithful. I have never had a dry period in my life because I feed myself well.”
Colarapp has created a very cool app that allows kids to see their drawings animated in augmented reality. You have to print out the templates first from their website, print, colour and download the free app. Once the drawing is ready you just place the app in front of the drawing and wait to be amazed!

Inspiration is every where! even in the details that we may sometimes forget are there…sometimes we need to refocus our vision from the BIG picture to the tiny specs and the little details.
Permission to dream. To be human is to dream, to think beyond what exists today. If the little people in this video are a sign of the population that will be leading us in the future, then I think we’ll be in good hands! Beautifully edited video.
“The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.
Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.”
