Treasure uncovered

My brain is always primed for inspiration.

It's something I learned while studying with brilliant tutors at Brighton College of Technology (now City College Brighton & Hove).

Every day, we students were churning out a huge volume of work, and constantly encouraged to scour the world around us for sparks of visual inspiration.

Almost every day now, I'll spot something that catches my eye.

Here is a yesterday's find – a piece of brilliant blue plastic nestled amid chalky stones.

I'll file this away in my subconscious, but as yet, I'm not sure what it will re-emerge as.

A mirror into another universe, perhaps... the missing piece to the princess's crown... a love amulet that got lost on the way to its rightful owner... hmm!
