Day 4: Creative Challenge

I have a confession to make. I'm hatching a plot to mug opera singer and strange bedfellow, Kanen Breen. It's the only way I'm going to be able to get my hands on his hand sequined jacket (see Day 3: Creative Challenge), and that jacket is a wardrobe 'must have'. I've set the date - Tuesday 16 December - and now I just have to lure him down a secluded alley so I can frighten him out of his jacket. If I catch him in a weak moment, I may even be able to scare him out of his vest (see Day 2: Creative Challenge). Have no fear, though, his sequined underpants are safe. Sequined Y-fronts are out of vogue.

He's been colouring in today, transforming disappointing business cards into colourful collector items. And he's done a fine job, indeed. These cards positively sing. Can you think of anyone else who would have come up with a solution like this? It's a definite creative gong in my book.

Stephen Bennett composed a moody piano piece today, inspired by some Chopin he heard on the radio. It's an energetic composition and he's very pleased with the result. He's recorded a sequence and you can listen to it here.

Basking in the success of my first drawing since primary school (see Day 2: Creative Challenge), which looks like it was drawn by someone who's at least...well...ten years old, I decided to have another go.

I took a photo of Duke and drew from the photo. Then I photographed the drawing and transformed it in my graphics software. It's not a bad effort. It might even be considered quite good if you were...say...ten and a half.
