hope

February 4, 2010

What do you hope for? This was the brief, for our next project, from our CD along with an artists’ canvass and carte blanche in terms of our choice of medium. Our works of art would then be sold to the public with the funds donated to a charity. So the pressure was on to bow to mass appeal  – not just the comfort of those we know. 
My sculpture, titled ‘diamonds on the soles of my Christian Louboutin’s’ illustrated my hope for walking in style along a path of simplicity and abundance. A spiritual and physical journey free of clutter and baggage – where each step brings me closer to all the beauty life has to offer. I believe that I am walking along that road right now and the feeling of achieving what I hoped is both liberating and encouraging.
To good friends leaving our fair shore, I wish that all your hopes become a reality too.

20 bucks

‘No work for lazy man’ is Rian Manser’s personal brand. He’s the solo adventurer who circumnavigated Africa on a bicycle to raise awareness of how dire  the living standard of this continent is. ‘Every day, millions of people get up and make the most of even the harshest situation. Those sitting on their butts, only complaining, get nothing. Results come from action’ he says. And I agree. 



Ever since we were 2 bricks and a plank high, Tess and I were introduced to and involved in volunteering for a host of charity organisations. Mom had us doing everything from stuffing envelopes for the deaf to training handicapped kids for their inter-orphanage mini-olympics. We served tea at old age homes, rattled tins at malls for Catholic welfare, made sandwiches for soup kitchens, the list is endless. They were all amazing experiences which probably require a blog of their own (one day). But the point I’m trying to make is that there are countless organisations which offer assistance to anyone in need. There is therefore no need to beg on the streets.


Today, I take my hat off to all the ikeys who spend their time and effort sustaining Shawco. Thanks for the laughs from your Sax Appeal magazine – and here’s to the delightfully eager young entrepreneur who put a smile on my face at 7 this morning. Well worth R20, don’t you think?

pecha kucha

February 3, 2010
Our executive creative director has the amazing ability of tapping into the creativity of all his staff, not just the creative department. Periodically, and with no forewarning, we’re each given a brief and a deadline; no-one’s excluded, not the MD or the tea lady. 

my survival guide

One of the first projects was a concept called Pecha Kucha*, where we were tasked to design a 20-frame slideshow and present within 7 minutes. These are a few of my slides.
embrace challenge

reward outweighs fear

Like most people, I have an innate fear of public speaking. It’s just not what I feel comfortable doing. But I am happy to report that, much to my surprise, my presentation was incredibly well received. I even managed to extricate a few laughs along the way. 

listen

have roots

and wings

What probably made the whole experience even easier is that I am also blessed to be working in a nurturing environment.
be in awe

be proud

An environment where each day we find the time to laugh together, encourage each other and still meet deadline on an ad or two.
appreciate support

respect their dreams

abandon responsibility sometimes

Thank you for meeting me.
travel lightly

rest

love and light, Clouds

*PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. (description taken from pecha-kucha.org)

February 1, 2010

I have a Flickr site so mates abroad can keep track of what I’m up to and where I’ve been. But Yahoo!, which drives Flickr, has lost me. So if you have any idea where I am, plse mail Yahoo! and tell them. I really would like to update my site before Lucy phones and complains about that as well.

 BREAKING NEWS: Yahoo! staff keeps mum on Clouds’ whereabouts.
