- It's David Lynch talking about creativity and where it comes from. He is so incredibly creative and prolific and his advice is so simple yet wise.
- The illustrations are so beautiful and they enrich your understanding of David's soothing words.
- The colour pallet is just divine... love, love, love ♥
- David debunks the myth that suffering is a necessary part of the creative process... hoo-bloody-ray!

Peter Dahmen is a German artist. He is in fact a Paper Architect. His love for pop-up came about from his need to catch public transport with a major work while he was studying graphic design. I am still amazes me how our lives can change direction because of the most random things.
Peter manages to capture movement and shape in his dynamic paper works and he has managed to turn his love of pop-up into a full time career.
Here is a short documentry on Peter and how he got into paper architecture. His work and attention to detail is amazing.

You can find all sorts of amazing artists while searching the wonderful world of the internet... I love Jennifer Tyers landscapes so much. There is a beautiful childish simplicity in the large blocks of colour and the simplification and almost illustration like. They also remind me of the beautiful water colours my beautiful late Aunty Carmiña did in the 50's.
This image is from her 2013 collection called Double Dipper. She made these works while she was on a residency in Byron Bay.
I adore the brightness creeping in to her more recent works. This piece is from her 2014 collection called Tropical Garden.
I almost want to climb into these glorious bright watercolours and skip through these magical landscapes.
Her work brings light + colour + joy into the real world.
