thinking and collecting

white

blank canvas, by photoshop ;o)

I am seeing the illustrator tomorrow to discuss the new project. We will focus on visualising one of the mini stories and it will rain cats and dogs and grannies.

Will it work?

I have started collecting things I like. In a way it will help him (yes, it is a he) – well, hopefully it will, to get an insight into my little world and how things look like. Scary? Not really. But ever changing. Is this important to ‘see’ what I ‘see’? Well, I think it is.

Then again, could it be confusing at the same time? I always say that I don’t like boxes and boxed thinking and now what am I doing? Actually placing myself and the illustrator in a box, in my box… this is not really what I want to do.

However, I feel that we need to find a common starting point on this journey and then give our ideas wings. Yes, I am saying our ideas. It is not about the writer anymore, it is now working together and finding a way to interprete the text in such a way that it pleases both, as well as the reader and learner. To co-create something new and of value. And it should really go beyond creating something that pleases somebody or manybodies. It should be something exciting that gives the reader and learner wings and allows a rich, stimulating and engaging experience.

It is a blank canvas at the moment but not for long… Yes, we are going to create a learning resource/learning resources together. Yes, plural, if the experiment works ;o)

  1. Hi There!
    Just wanted to add my “excited anticipation on the new “project” too.

    I don’t see boxes anywhere in this process – because it is not a box – it is a process. We have some nice potential horizons to look towards right now and we will just have to keep our eye, mind and hearts open to follow the right signs along the way…..the sweet pizzas were great.

    And your mind is not scary, well not the bits I saw!

    Best wishes
    Bernard

  2. Thanks Bernard, it makes me feel so much better. Glad you liked the pizza. We will have something authentic Greek next time when Stavros joins us.
