We've all been there. Something is not right, we're unhappy, we're frustrated, we're irritated. What do we do? We complain about it, we tell it to everyone who'll listen, we wring out hands. Complaining about our problems don't make them go away. So instead of talking about it, DO something about it! Roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. You'd be surprised at how much you can change.

Yesterday was an amazing day all around. I met @tommytrc on twitter. He convinced the chamber in Appleton, WI to bring me out as the opening speaker for an cultivate community event.
There were better ideas in this and neighboring midwest communities than in all of the west coast idea labs I've illustrated for. One of the other speakers was Greg Tehven from Fargo. Here's a picture I drew of his talk. He's got a great tedxtalk: https://youtu.be/vDgrSSfd8m8 #CreativeGenius

This month Creative Genius Portland caught up with Gina Johnson Morris, a multi-talented creative genius!

Among other things, Gina is one of the women behind the downtown women's boutique Radish Underground, manager of BridgeLab PNCA, a dancer, choreographer and co-creator of a hit viral video. We visited her in her store to chat about life, creativity and reconciling art & income.

As you will see below, Gina is the perfect example of someone using their imagination and visual goal setting to create an awesome future!

AWEsome experience in Appleton, WI
Something strange is brewing in our fair Fox Cities... and I like it. I've always been a fan of the strange. Borders being pushed, change evolving, ideas coming out to play... then sticking around and growing. Growth. Yesterday was a bright day of light bulb moments for me. I started it out by attending a great event put on by the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the TimberRattlers stadium (Cultivate Event).  It was an ...
