Last week, along with my students, I attended Design Matters, this year's Design, Art and Technology Symposium, at High Point University. It was terrific event with speakers and panelists representing many facets of the arts from fashion to photography to business.
The only thing a little odd about the conference was the creepy guy that insisted on sitting next to me. I moved around, but everywhere I went he followed. Inspired by the work of Sheila (From Forensic to Fine Art) I drew the stranger out of the corner of my eye just in case I needed to identify him in a police line-up sometime in the future.
He looked kinda like this:
I think he has distinctive enough features (3 eyes, teeth that sit perpendicular to his face), that he should be pretty easy to remember...
Ha. Actually this creepy guy is a Stupid Creature. His creator, John Murphy, was one of the panelists in a discussion on creativity and entrepreneurship. It was great hearing about John's process and how his hobby turned into an incredible business. Inspiration comes in so, so many forms.
