Hey folks, I’m Scott and this is the website I run.
Everything around here is all about “how to lead a more creative life”. That’s the mission of this particular digital outpost.
This is what I’m striving to do and I hope this work connects with other people who want to do the same.
Creativity is, at an elemental level, about the need and ability to communicate and that is something available to everyone.
You are creative. It’s built into us.
Sometimes it just takes time to get good at it but that’s ok. Take the time and put the work in.
Remember, it doesn’t take skill to practice.
Consider this your pep talk. Forget your doubts and just start making stuff. Two years from now, you’ll be amazed at how far you’ve progressed.
Start surprising yourself. Start today.
What do I know about creativity?
Am I world famous artist? Nope. Am I a creative person who just makes stuff? Yep.
So let’s take a brief walk through some of the stuff I’ve made.
I’ve done some animation like in this music video. I’ve done just enough animation to really appreciate how incredibly difficult it is. The music in the video is by Wayne Andrews and myself.
I’ve pitched a few TV show projects with people also but nothing has been greenlit. I occasionally make strange websites like this one about the relative weights of objects: WeighsTheSame.com
Lately I’ve been concentrating my efforts on writing and illustrating picture books for adults, no not the dirty kind, which you can find on amazon – like these two books The Evil Clown Alphabet and The Story of Donald Thumb.
So that’s me. I’ve made stuff and I will continue to make stuff.
Join me. Get creative. Let us hear your voice!
Be great, Scott
