Welcome to the second video installment in my “Thinklings” video series.
Thinklings are my spur of the moment tips, thoughts, and ideas on how to see the world around us differently and “Live Creatively”. Enjoy!
Warning… I am apologizing ahead of time for the amusement park ride quality of my videos and incorrect video landscape/portrait modes. But, Dang it, Jim! I’m an Ink-spirational leader, not a videographer.
I love sharing my inkling sketches.
I love sharing my thinkling thoughts.
I love inspiring you to Live Creatively.

THANK YOU! and LIVE CREATIVELY!
Let’s say that you just bough a red car. Now, you notice more red cars on the road. Is this a coincidence? No. It’s a focus thing. Whatever you focus on, opens up some sort of channel in your mind’s eye, to allow what your are focusing on be magnified. I haven’t researched the science behind this yet, but, dang it, Jim, I’m an artist and not a neuroscientist.
We can apply this same concept to our creative minds.
What does this have to do with my photo above?
As you may know, I love to do inkling sketches that have hearts in them. I have somehow implanted this focus filter in my subconscious mind. I now see heart shapes in random places — even when I’m not looking for them.
This morning, I looked down at my dining room table and saw my earphones in the heart-shaped pattern you see in the photo. (by the way, why do they call them earphones? It’s not like anybody is dialing to talk to my lobes? But, I digress….)
We can take the “see more red cars” concept and apply it to our creative minds to allow us to see ordinary objects and the world around us in new and inspiring ways.
Well, now I’m off to go and buy a red Ferrari, I’ll let you know if I see more of them on the road. (Okay…I’m not really, but it doesn’t hurt to drive that idea into my brain.)
How are some ways you’ve experienced this? Share your ideas and comments.
Inkling sketch of Noah…. I actually got him to stand still for one minute.
I hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.
