Whenever I sit down to sketch anything at least 90% of the time I end up drawing a cat, or a samurai, or genitals. Going to Eva's talk and workshop made really think about how I draw these things, though admitably didn't address why I'm drawn (if you'll excuse the pun)  to them. Another one for therapy perhaps?

From the 2nd to the 4th of September the Reasons To Be Creative conference returned to Brighton. The conference brings together the best in art, design and development and is aimed at designers, developers and anyone with a creative mind. A number of the team at Mind Orchard were able to attend a variety of different talks and workshops with the hope of being inspired, learning something new and meeting like minded creatives from Brighton and beyond.
