“Being creative is a gift,

but for creativity to become your profession you need three essentials:

time, focus and the right state of mind.

…These conditions can be quite unobtainable in the modern hectic life;

Don’t ask me what I do on a typical day,

even the times when I look disconnected or spaced out,

I’m still actually working!”
