Sitting on my balcony one day, I was trying to come up with a clever icon for my friend’s company. She has a great fondness for trees and red hawks. So, out of the blue I saw this image and jotted it down. I wanted to combine the shapes of the bird and floating leaf in one. I think I managed to capture it quite well. The final version is below.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
