Seven questions... an introduction

I am going to try something new on the ol' nanolog... I'm going to explore the creative spirit through mini interviews with the artists that I am proud to know on and offline. I am proud to know musicians, designers, photographers, and writers... and I want to understand them better. I want to learn about what inspires them and what drives them... and, in doing so, do my bit to promote their art and craft.

Here are the questions I will be asking them:

1) Who are you and what do you do?
2) What are you working on at the moment?
3) Who inspires you?
- Name an artist who has inspired you.
- Name place that has inspired you.
- Name some "thing" that has inspired you.
4) What drives you to do what you do?
5) What values do you wish your creativity to express?
6) What role does community play in what you do?
7) What is next for what you do?

I am hoping to get content to post an interview every Tuesday and Thursday. Its an experiment... if it works (and I have a feeling it will) then fab... if it dies, so be it.

If you are reading this... and want to contribute then please do so. Send me an email and I'll see what I can do to schedule you. My only stipulation is that you keep it clean... my mother ducks in and out and I don't need *another* reason for her to shout at me ;-)

Thanks in advance.

Just to say that your Dad does too.

Seriously, I think it is a very good idea and I hope you persist with it. Best Wishes.
