I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Old Time Music, Sign Painters & Getting Your Inspiration Thirdhand by Joshua Blankenship

Occa­sion­ally you read some­thing that really res­on­ates with you.

Ori­gin­al­ity is occa­sion­al. Second­hand inspir­a­tion can do won­ders in the hands of crafts­men. But third­hand inspir­a­tion is always slightly blurry around the edges. It lacks focus. Young muses rarely deliv­er what they prom­ise. Energy gets lost in every cre­at­ive exchange, like a game of Tele­phone. The uni­verse favors entropy.

At the moment I’m try­ing to design my blog. I find myself look­ing at all my favour­ite blog­gers and at my col­lec­tion of screen grabbed web­sites. Instead I should be look­ing at who and what interests me so that the site I design reflects me rather than the people I read.
