This week I've taken part in Creative Boom's Favourite Things feature in which creative people select five things that mean a great deal to them. Creator Katy Cowan says, 'Favourite Things is a very clever way of drawing out the true human spirit of the people we feature. Obviously, I'm after a creative theme here and it has to be stuff, things, tools, materials, books, CDs or hobbies close to your heart. It doesn't have to be literal - you could, for example, take a snap of your walking boots to imply you love getting out into the hills.'
It's a lovely insight into what inspires creative people. For mine, I chose five objects here in my office/studio. One of them was this:
If you want to know what it is and why it's important to me, go and have a look at my Favourite Things page.
And why not submit your Favourite Things? Just write a paragraph explaining why each of the five 'things' - objects, people, dates etc. - mean something to you, take some photos (prefereably in natural light) and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Go on. I've shown you mine, now you show me yours.
