Designer'sJames VictoreHe will do the necessary tasks at the bar and do practical work at the studio. When it's time to make a book, he leaves the studio in the morning, sits on the chair in the park and makes thoughts, and if you come up with an idea I will spend about one and a half hours like drawing it in a big sketchbook. After returning to the studio and working until around 16 or 17 o'clock, we will rewind to the bar again, drink a cup of beer and further clarify the idea and draw a new idea.

A wonderful idea is born because we can be free without thinking about work. The way to think is done externally and in the studio it is only the work of joining it, the way that Victore is unable to do all the work in the studio.

ByNick Kenrick

Garrison Keillor, hosting the radio, thinks that people should not sit still and look at the blank page to get the idea. According to Keillor, it is important to walk around to create ideas, find clippings of articles, take notes, and write about things around you. For example, someone enters the room and finds a wonderful column. And if you think that the column once saved the bank, I will take a note with two things together. This is the start.

Everything starts with observation. Even if eventually I do not need the idea at the start, the starting point is still a conversation that I always heard or heard by chance. The world is full of various conversations, and as you enter a room with people it will make it even easier to get the idea seeds.
