Killer SnowmanI like to think that most of the people who visit my website are generally creative people. I mean, if you love reading comic books, or enjoy watching movies, then there must be something about you that gets a buzz from creativity. Now I'm sure this can work on both a visual level or a subliminal one. Yet either way, at the end of the day, creativity is the key that could ultimately unlock your door.

To explain what I mean by this, try to picture two men observing the said-same snowman. Now one of them isn't what I'd call a really creative person, and he looks upon these frigid fabrications as nothing more than icy sculptures, only worth making whenever it's cold and snowy outside. Yet in stark contrast to this, the other man is a very creative individual, and he ponder's why there aren't any ethnically diverse snowmen, or for that matter, why they're always generally gender specific! He does this while keeping in mind that the exploratory nature of creativity can be a two-sided argument, not always logical to your average viewer, and not always accepted by them either.  

TiqetsA nice way of illustrating this subsequent point is by imagining someone peeing into the snow, tinkle-tinkle, making a snowman out of the yellow-tinged by-product, squash-squash, and afterwards, implying that this differently hued snowman was of foreign descent. Ouch! Seriously, if someone did this, would that imply that this person was a racist person or a creative person? I suppose on some level this would all depend on their original intent. Yet to understand this intent, understand it fully, you need to be creative, you need to be open-minded, and you need to be able to see things in a different light.

How I go about doing this is by visiting numerous museums and art galleries just to see how other people view and depict the world around them. Back in the day, esteemed directors such as D. W. Griffith, Cecil B DeMille, John Ford, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, and Sergio Leone, to name but a few, would insist that they'd go to a museum or a gallery before shooting a film, just so they could get some sort of visual inspiration from whatever they see. You could also say the same thing about people in the comic book field. I once remember watching an interview with the creator of Batman, Bob Kane, where he stated that a part of his inspiration for creating Batman came from the artist, Leonardo Da Vinci, especially where his winged motif is concerned. 

Normally I find out where I want to go by looking and then booking my tickets via the culture and entertainments app, Tiqets. All you have to do is download a free copy via the app store, or google play (whichever one is more compatible with your smartphone), before clicking on it and then searching for whatever place takes your fancy. Here, check out this promotional video for a quick demonstration.
