https://samanthahahn.com/ Samantha Hahn a Brooklyn based illustrator covers the New York Fashion week and in this article in The Cut Hahn talks about how illustrating the pieces makes her slow down and take time to look and see, then look again to take in the texture, the details, the form. She notices how technology has [...]

https://youtu.be/mKRpQzhpqEE This is a video the guys at zero limits production created for PatChats. It's a breakfast talk series I co-host with Eamon Eastwood of Taste Ireland on behalf of the Lansdowne Club. PatChats is kind of like TED talks with an accent.

So, what is branding?

By |May 30th, 2018|Branding, Creativity, Design, The Daily Practice, Work, Money and Play|Comments Off on So, what is branding?

Is it a logo, is it a colour, is it a rumour, is it a plane? The word branding is loosely thrown into conversation like people speak with false familiarity about having 'done' France by touristing through Paris for 24 hours. Paris, delightfully is much more than can be fitted into a passing glance, just like a brand is more [...]

Spiritual stuff vs Material stuff

By |September 1st, 2017|Work, Money and Play|Comments Off on Spiritual stuff vs Material stuff

Is spiritual just fluff and is material all there is? The dictionary defines spiritual as relating to or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things. The antonyms are physical, material, corporeal, mundane Personally I need both and I would suggest we all do in these times of information overload, [...]

How does your creativity comes calling?

By |August 2nd, 2017|Creativity, Meditation, The Daily Practice, Work, Money and Play|Comments Off on How does your creativity comes calling?

I can never read a book without it sparking a new idea. I think, well, that's great but what about this? The creative mind sparks and next thing I'm reminded of some other thing, theory or idea and off down the rabbit hole I go? Austin Kleon in his book Steal like an Artist writes when you [...]

Half Year Check in

By |July 4th, 2017|Creativity, The Daily Practice, Work, Money and Play|Comments Off on Half Year Check in

Can you believe it's July already? Rumour has it time is speeding up. The physicist Brian Greene might say time is different for all of us but it sure feels it's on crack from where I am. Only minutes ago (or it felt that way) it was Summer with daily swims, New Year's Eve fireworks with friends and [...]

Decision or Procrastination

By |March 15th, 2017|Meditation, Uncategorized, Work, Money and Play|Comments Off on Decision or Procrastination

Do you remember slow bicycle races at school fetes where the challenge was to traverse 100 metres as slowly as possible without falling over. I hated them as much as they thrilled me in a masochistic way. Trying to stand still has never been my strength but that tension between movement and balance is a kind [...]

The value of foreign and normal

By |February 1st, 2017|Creativity, Work, Money and Play|Comments Off on The value of foreign and normal

via Pinterest Hayley Cariker I have lived in Australia off and on for more than 20 years. It would be fair to say we've had a challenging relationship. I realise it's resonant of the relationship I sometimes have with myself and of course amplified by being in a 'foreign' country, and place where I grew up. The [...]

Which side of the same coin are you looking at?

By |November 25th, 2016|Creativity, Mind, Work, Money and Play|Comments Off on Which side of the same coin are you looking at?

How we see the world is how the world presents itself to us. If we look for good we tend to find it. If we look for bad we tend to find it or when we choose this perspective we would likely see that bad things tend to find us. This applies to every meeting, project, event, [...]
