I have this sleeping urge in me. Let me rather call it this sleeping artistic, creative animal; let me call it Art-hog. Now and then, the Art-hog wakes up and nibbles on my insides, begging to get out. I just had to find a way of feeding Art-hog but how? – Where? Art-hog awakens all these overwhelming artistic, creative ideas in my mind. The challenge always lay in how to channel these ideas. I rarely managed to find a specific project between all these ideas that flashed through my mind. One day I came up with this inspiring idea, start a website; put these creative ideas in words. Involve other artistic people to share their ideas with me. Urge other artistic, creative minds to come to life on this site, give them a place to vent their creative talents. At last, a way to feed Art-hog; Creativity news was born. Still an infant, but I am sure that with all the thousands of fantastic, artistic and creative minds in this world, helping me feed Art-hog; Creativity news will grow into a huge breathing, living giant. To all those talented creative minds out in the world, feel free, live out your creativity. Let’s feed Art-hog, let’s grow Creativity news.
