My sister saw me doodling the other day on a piece of paper and asked me, raising an eyebrow: "Teo, what are you doing, are you working with non lucrative purposes?" :) I told her "But of course, I'm playing!" It's something I deeply appreciate in my life, it stimulates my creativity and it keeps me sane in stressful situations. And sometimes, when the outcome is not that bad, I release it into the world (wide web) for like-minded people to see it.
Here's a project I'm playing with in my free time - first with the ideas, then with the text and the drawings, later on with the book concept and design... hum, who knows when it will come to its completion, but it doesn't matter. It's set aside for the days I need an inspiration boost, as creativity is always powered by fun, games, doing something different. You know... muses don't just drop by if you sit and wait, they have to find you playing!
