The urban dragon

In Art, Creative, Inspire on November 17, 2012 at 11:58 am

I stumbled across this little gem while wandering through the city today. A creative outburst of color, shape, and form. Even freeform is a type of form.

I’m not sure who did it or when it was done, but I call this one ‘The Urban Dragon’.

There’s a ton of little bursts of creativity out there that can inspire you on a daily basis. All you have to do is seek. And you shall find.

The little creative warrior

Okay, so I have a little confession to make.

I usually like to leave my creative writing for Sundays. I find it therapeutic. Granted, I write all the time. And I mean, all the time. It’s in my blood. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved to write. I do it for a living and now, I even run three blogs, so that’s a lot of writing!

I’m always pumping something out on my little iPhone. My poor little iPhone. It’s got such a backlog of blogs and ideas waiting to be unleashed. God help if I ever lose it. It would be like losing my mind!

Mind you, I’m not even counting the storyboards and documents I churn out at the office.

But I recently hit a Sunday where I faced a day of creative frustration. And it wasn’t that I wasn’t able to string words together. It was because I wanted to do more. So I kept going and at the end of the day, I was writing til midnight and had smashed out four blogs. And an idea I was excited about.

Somehow I had managed to tackle the beast and got my creative juices going. But I thought I had wasted a day fluffing around trying to get there. Or had I?

So what keeps us creatives going?

I am a rock

Have you seen the new Amarok ad for Volkswagen?

“I think, therefore I Amarok.”

Snap! Talk about clever copy.

It marries two simple ideas. The play on the name. And a tag everyone can easily relate to.

Another great example of simple creativity and getting the point across to your target audience. And then some.
