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.
