The problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete

Grayson Perry once said "I feel it is more important to have a long and sympathetic hands-on relationship with materials. A relaxed, humble, ever curious love of stuff is central to my idea of being an artist."
May I be so bold as to agree with you Mr Perry?

Comics

I am inspired by just about anything I have ever read. "Persepolis" by Marjane Satrapi woke me up (again) to the potential of comics and the graphic novel.
I like telling stories and making pictures. So comics are a real no-brainer.

Place-based Learning

Experiential, art-based, environmental, often outside the classroom but not always. Start where you are. Start with an open mind. Start with a sense of wonder and curiosity. But make sure you start.

Writing

My blog is a way of thinking and interacting. I am also a translator, working from French, German and Swedish to English. This helps when reading comic authors like Marjane Satrapi, Sara Granér and Ralf König in the original language.
