"Pick your influences from your environment." - David Carson.
Sitting in on Carson's session yesterday was a creative kick in the pants. He's a great presenter, he has a great sense of humor. I figured as much, you can't be that clever without being able to have a chuckle. He has a light hearted approach to his work, and stressed being open to the things you are not expecting.
He said something that will remain with me long after FITC, "man works when he is partially involved...when he's totally involved it's play." So let's ask ourselves, if money was not an issue, would you still be doing the same thing?
