I’m already looking forward to OER19, and I’m delighted that it will take place in the motherland.
Of course, I couldn’t resist this little remix of the flyer when I first saw it. This is a product of Mathers third principle of Visual Thinkery – Curiosity must not come back empty-handed…

It seems that practically the whole of the known internet (more than 5 people) is busy doodling portraits of Colin Madland, who has very graciously offered up his face to artists for the purposes of visual experimentation, and thus inspired this comic strip.
I try to stay away from portraits, as it has often led to an awkward conversation, and reminded me that how a person sees their self is pretty warped to begin with. Indeed, I can’t help but see my face in terms of the things that aren’t even there – eyebrows, eyelashes, etc. You know I’ve always been a smooth operator…
Hey, I did this portrait of you!
Oh? I don’t think I really look like that.

Working in the open – it often feels counter-intuitive. What if someone criticises my half-baked idea? What if they make it stronger? What if someone dislikes the thing I’ve created? What if they really like it? What if they pinch the idea? What if they’re able to use the idea, or add theirs to it?
Inspiration comes from others. Be an other.
