Now or Never.

"A painting, a book, a piece of music. They serve not just to depict but to capture- capture a time that will soon be absent."

- John Connell

This sums it up perfectly, doesn't it? It explains so well why I always have to finish making things straight away once I've started them- before the time that I'm depicting/capturing passes.

Oh, The Quirk.

This young lady, Juno Temple, has such a quirky, inspiring look.

She also has fantastic acting skills! Double whammy. See her in Atonement, St Trinians, Mr Nobody, Year One and many others of which I haven't yet had the pleasure of seeing.

Epic Collaboration.

Basement Birds are a pretty epic collaboration. The artistic talents of Kevin Mitchell, Steve Parkin, Josh Pyke and Kav Temperley come together to create a unique sound of brilliance. Their song Bus Stop is even more collaboration-full, with the addition of Julia Stone's greatness. It seems the more collaborationy it is, the more beautiful the outcome.


Joint Thinking.

"While the Western belief in individualism romanticises this perception of the solitary creative process, the reality is that scientific and artistic forms emerge from the joint thinking, passionate conversations, emotional connections and shared struggles common in meaningful relationships."

- Vera John-Steiner, Creative Collaboration
