things you might not know…

I forgot my sketch book today:

 

My mind seems to wander and every night I’ll have a dream…sometimes more dreams. I can’t help but constantly notice things that can be improved, look beautiful, look nice or look uncanny. It’s like an ongoing battle to get my mind to become normal so I don’t have to notice ‘everything’ but maybe it is how I am supposed to be!

I used to want to be an architect, I would still love to be but I equally love designing for interactions between people and human behavior…so an environmental designer would be the best thing. One whole year of reading then I can start that! Quite exciting!

Jinsop Lee short review

This afternoon I watched Jinsop Lee’s Ted talk on ‘Design for all 5 senses’. He took memorable experiences from his life where different senses fluctuated depending on the experience itself. It may be impossible to design a 10/10 for each sense when designing but I feel it is important as designers to get as close as possible in touch,hear,smell,see and taste to create a great product or experience. I really like his thinking…

Now I know why I love snowboarding so much: you see the mountain around you, hear the wind blow, feel the cold, smell the fresh mountain air, and taste the French baguette for lunch!

 

True this…

What if I can’t be all that you need me to be
We’ve got a good thing going, we have some promises to keep
But my addiction it can be such a detriment
Please believe in this my dear, I am more than penitent

What if everything’s just the way that it will be
Could it be that I am meant to cause you all this grief
My war ships are lying off the coast of your delicate heart
And my aim is steady and true as it’s been right from the start

There’s a degree of difficulty in dealing with me
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories.
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall, stare into the past and forget it all

So when we leave it’ll be a quick midnight escape
We’ll disconnect ourselves from all of yesterday
I’ll dig for water and fashion our very own wishing well
Then we’ll throw our coins down hoping to rid of us of this little hell

There’s a degree of difficulty in dealing with me
From my haunted past comes a daunting task of living through memories.
If we could just hang a mirror on the bedroom wall, stare into the past and forget it all

Will we get out of this little hell

Thoughts…

The randomness of our mind’s are unreal. Well definitely for my mind anyway. Today I have a few emails to fire out then I can sit and draw a new piece where I will attempt to draw my mind right now! I’ll post it when I have finished it and I hope you appreciate how abstract it may be.
