'Don't feel guilty about spending time with friends.'

I've been reading a couple of excellent books lately about art and business.

Basically – pretty much like anything else in life – it's all about people.

When you work for yourself, there's a sense that you should be feverishly creating stuff all of the time.

But, both of the books I've read actually advise you to enjoy just hanging out with your friends - because very often, that's when magic happens.

So that's what I've been doing a bit more of recently. The pictures below were all snapped while I was spending time with some of the wonderful and crazy people I know.

And you know what? Some fun projects are brewing already. But more about that next week :)
