And when I wasn’t working on those things, I was working to make enough money to survive. But when’s the last time I did a drawing or painting? I often can’t help taking some photos, but when’s the last time I posted one?
It’s sort of like I’ve been working so hard on feeding other people, with the projects I think could help a lot of people, that I haven’t been feeding myself.
So I took part of yesterday to start preparing a photo to post, which I hope to do soon.
I’m the variety guy, but didn’t have variety. Luckily, there’s a loophole. Maybe I needed the variety of not feeding those parts of me for a while??
This short video (3.5 minutes) is for people who own French press coffee makers AS WELL AS designers and anyone interested in innovation and creativity. It also uses a mind map you can explore while learning some proximity thinking at the same time!
I’ve created a one minute overview of proximity thinking, including what it is, why the word “proximity,” and the main parts of the framework.
NOTE — THIS IS A PLAYLIST OF THREE VIDEOS. The first short clip is me introducing the new one minute overview, which will then play next so you can just wait for it to start. Then third, it will play a long video, and if you watch that I highly recommend clicking the FULL-SCREEN button (lower right corner when you hover your mouse over the video).
Hope you enjoy my new drawing video on the DavidDrawing YouTube Channel. It’s called “Caterpillar Trailer” and here’s what I wrote about it:
Watch this one evolve into something that looks like a cross between a caterpillar and a tractor-trailer. It looks a little like something out of a children’s book, but probably too abstract and odd to be in one!
I’m doing a public online Let’s ProxThink session this Sunday, May 18, from 5:00 – 6:30 pm PST. It’s a live Google+ Hangout On Air. It could be the freshest one I’ll ever do, and/or it could be a train wreck! Later, part or all of it may go on the ProxThink YouTube Channel. You can find out more at lets.proxthink.com.
Here’s a 15 second video promo I recently made! Thanks!
Putting the final touches on the drawing “What She Said,” as I was testing the video setup. Luckily, this was when the personality emerged. I like the ambiguity of the noses and mouths. Where they are keeps changing as I look at it. The drawing also has this weird quality of being sad and hopeful at the same time. Maybe it’s because I sort of see several faces at the same time. One of them is even upside down, like an animal reaching down to feed on grass. This animal face that seems very innocent is only using the left side of the larger head shape and the left side of the eye, and I see the right side of its face, whereas for the larger more human face I see the left side. Ambiguous drawings seem to stay fresh longer.
