on Creativity….it’s not so hard
There are lots of people out there who are far more creative than I, especially if one defines “creativity” as “coming up with ideas, solutions, new thoughts that are exciting”. I may not really fit into any of those categories, but there are times when I feel like it does fit, and so it was with Parallel Advisors and the recent art I did for their end-of-year card. One might think that a wealth management firm would put out a pretty conservative piece, and all my initial sketches reflected that belief, but that’s not the direction the art eventually took. What we ended up with was a piece that was semi-abstract, loose, colorful, and still had their logo prominently displayed. It was a lot of fun for me to create, they are pleased, and it was one of those rare times when the commercial and the abstract came together. I will reproduce the art as soon as this site allows it, so for the moment, trust me.
