Creative Mornings

April 18, 2011 § 3 Comments

I got up early on Friday morning to take the train to DUMBO to attend my first Creative Morning at the Galapagos Gallery, and I’m so glad I did! Despite the fact I almost walked in traffic on the BQE, then a late start after the rep from the gallery presumably slept in, the event was such a pleasure. I met a couple new friends while waiting for it to start, partook in their free coffee and pastries, and admired the beautiful insides of the gallery.

Illustrator Christoph Niemann was the speaker that day and entertained us with his tales of being a freelance illustrator in Berlin and made us laugh with his hand drawn slides. I loved his honesty and modesty and his attitude that you aren’t just born with this talent for being creative, it really does take a lot of work. I sure hope he’s wrong about yoga ruining your design career though.

Bonus moment: I met Joanna Goddard, the magazine writer and author of my favourite blog A Cup of  Jo, on the street after the event and she told me she liked my hair. Swoon!
