|How and why did you begin to be creative?
I believe I have always been creative. I’ve drawn since before I could write and always played and tinkered with things to either find out how they worked or to make them into something entirely different.
As for why, who knows, I think its just the way I thought and looked at things- seeing them for what they could be rather than what they were.
We, the partners at idea Distillery, have always been creative (at least within the context of our respective fields) some naturally, some through hard work, others through study, still others by experience.
Several years ago it became clear that a knowledge and creative vacuum was occurring in the U.S. (as well as abroad.) This “lack of brainpower” was reported in a number of high profile publications; The Economist, Forbes, Business Week and The Harvard Business Review.
The Still, LLC was formed to fill this void and begin not only generating ideas but assisting companies to create their own talent factories.
I've always been creative, having staged my own war and biblical movies at the ripe old age of five...My parents found me attempting to re-enact Christ's crucifixion once. I'm surprised they didn't send me off to a shrink! In all seriousness, I feel as though I can't live any other way than in a creative way. I look at the people going to work day in and day out, living such a mundane if not banal existence and I cry for them.
When I was in elementry school, I was told to write an interesting story for an english class. My teacher gave me a good grade on the paper and wrote that I was very creative. That encouragement spurred me on to more creativity. I began to write poetry when I was twelve and then journal when I was sixteen. (An assignment in High School English) I found that my writings gave me an outlet for expression. I can look back on the times that I have journaled in life and see peace and then the times that I'd not written and see strife.
I was born that way.
I don't think I'm creative in all areas. As far as cartooning is concerned, it seems to be in my genes. I feel sorry to tell people that the idea just comes out from the way I view and think. I don't sit in front of my desk seriously and try to squeeze out an idea. Rather, I often come out ideas, when I am in a shower, doing dishes, or driving (that could be dangerous). There were times when I couldn't stop thinking during my sleep and when ideas came out of my dream.
I have always been creative, ..... I wanted to do something creative professionally.
I think my creative side was always there. The output for it - spoken word - emerged naturally.
Ever since I can remember, alot is always on my mind. I enjoy writing or sketching out my ideas so my mind is clear.
I've always been. From how I dove in the pool or jumped on the trampoline or blew up models with firecrackers...even as a child I was creative.
I don't think you ever "begin to be creative." I think you begin to EXPRESS your creativity in ways that become more and more noticeable. Maybe it's a drawing you make as a kid, or perhaps a cute finger painting.
No, it always begins and stays right in your head. It's how you think. It's how you make your toys talk to you when you're 4. It's how you craft a sentence when you're 40. It's how you plant the garden, solve a problem or just sit around and make-up cloud shapes. Creativity is very zen... it just is.
This strikes me as a ridiculous question. We are all creative from birth. That is how we come to know the world and our place in it. We experience, we learn, we interpret, and we become and do. It's only human.
From the moment I sat down to write my thoughts
From the moment my Barbie had a lucrative career.
From the moment I used my batman action figure as a microphone.
From the moment impersonated Martha Quinn in front of 25 lb. camcorder.
From the moment I was born a Pisces.
I'm wired to be creative, so I guess I've always been that way. (For the record, while some people may be more creative than others, I think most people think creatively about stuff that interests them.)
There have been times when my creativity felt more fecund than other times. Usually, that's at the start of a project I'm fired up about, or all the way through a project I'm fired up about that's also short. (I have problems with finishing and follow-through.)
