Inspired by various people’s lists of things they find interesting/inspiring, I thought I’d share a list of things I’ve found inspiring in May. As I’ve recently started running, I end up listening to a lot of podcasts to while away the time, so there’s a fair few of those below.
Book: ‘Show your Work!’
Austin Kleon (one of my favourite creative people) published this third book over a year ago, and I found a shelf pretty much dedicated to him in my local bookshop, so bought it. 10 ways to share your creativity. As a very sporadic blogger, I’m hoping the tips in here will help me write and share more.
Podcast: Developer Tea Podcast.
“Developer Tea is engineered to be a highly-concentrated, short, frequent podcast specifically for developers who like to learn on their tea (and coffee) break.”
The description basically says it all. Short sharp bursts on learning, inspiration, motivation and creativity, interspersed with interviews with developers, usually around 10 minutes.
Music: Royal Blood, Royal Blood
Slightly crazy video for their “Out of The Black” with appropriate video from an Adult Swim animator:
http://www.aoh.org.uk/ - Brighton host’s this event twice a year. I went along to the May one and ended up thoroughly inspired and wanting to create stuff. There’s another one in November/December that I’ll definitely be going to.
