Piece of Cake
#ccsummit, @creativecommons, @DAJBelshaw
At the recent Creative Commons Summit in Lisbon, I tuned in to all sorts of insight from all sorts of people. But one of my favourite morsels of wisdom was this off-the-cuff comment by Dr. Doug Belshaw, which should serve as hearty wisdom for all future conference organisation teams.

Here’s one of those sketches re-created as a colour artwork using Procreate on the IPad Pro.

I’d like to know, because I think we’re all different. This is part of what I’m exploring with the gradual launch of The Remixer Machine.

This is what happens when a thought tickles my brain. TO THE REMIXER MACHINE!
As the Voronoi remixer exports in SVG, a vector format, it can then be extruded using Illustrator…
