Some people think that creative minds are alike, but they are not ! …All creative people have some kind of drive, something they just have to do, but different things and different drives. I find illustrators faschinating. What is it that makes them grab that pen, drawing some fabulous little creature….? I have no idée, I just know I love looking over their shoulders while they are doing it. Their creativity is from another world then mine which is more : Hey that square wheel…lets make it round and while we are at it, should it be green or blue…hmmm….maybe a bluish green….oh yes that would look good with my yellow dress…

Illuatrators are like writers, telling stories. Some of my favorites out there in the blogosphere is Elizabeth dunker : fine little day and fine little thing. She tells really good stories with both pen and camera. Sara: Happysilly Her dreawings are so fragile and with edges just look at this little worried sweetie below. I just want to make her coffee, sit with her until that phone call from the doctor. Kate Neckel Just so funky and great patterns and energy. Tiel: tsk tsk. Quiet, sweet and with great colors. Now go check their blogs....

Hi Mette! thanks for having me and my little afraid-one (she would love to drink your coffee and shiver by your side) here on your superblog. Really liked what you wrote about creativity, so true, we all have different thing that fascinates us. Different way to think. But i think we all have the same obsession for seeing things come from out of our hands. Sara!

Oh, thank you thank you sweet Mette. I too, would love to drink, not coffe, but chocolate with you. You could come over to my sofa and I could make you a cup. I think you know how much I enjoy your eye and hand. I will be watching your blog and hope for some glimpses of Greece.
