@armitage.shanks will be joining the Nitty Gritty stage at @cofgcollege on Monday the 25th of November 👏🏻⠀⠀ _⠀⠀ “I’m a freelance graphic designer and visual artist based in Glasgow who doesn’t have a fucking clue what is going on half of the time. A lot of my time is spent trying to work alongside and understand my ADHD, Dyslexia, and resulting anxiety. This hilarious battle between my chaotic nature versus a love of design systems and structure has developed into a bit of a style and an exercise in self-awareness.⠀⠀ -⠀⠀ My work draws inspiration from counter culture, Swiss design, graffiti, industrial typography, scientific diagrams, and architectural drawings.”⠀⠀ _⠀⠀⠀⠀ Book your tickets now to find out what it really takes to be a freelance designer 🔍 gdfs.uk/2019/tickets

Progress photos are kind of a new thing for me. But I decided maybe I should put them out there more so I don’t feel so pressured to only post “finished projects”. Especially when I am working on a series like I am now. . . What are your thoughts on progress photos? Do you love or hate them? As creatives do you like them to be a part of your feed or only the finished product? Would love to hear your thoughts! Comment below 👇🏼

I’ve been to Yoho National Park a number of times and I had no idea this beautiful spot existed. A few years ago I did a 17km hike just down the road from it and still didn’t realize it excised. Yesterday we had the day off so we decided to a bit of exploring and climbed down a small trail and found this at the bottom. It couldn’t have been a happier surprise 💕🏔. . I get asked fairly often how I edit my photos, I use Photoshop Elements to pull out the colour tones and make the photo pop. It’s easy to use and you can try it out with a free trial, they have so many options and even allow you to pull colour out of a black and white photo. . Check out my before and after ➡️. Check out the link in my bio to edit your photos using Photoshop Elements! . @PhotoshopElements #saveyourmemories #PhotoshopElements #memorykeeper #flashesofdelight #creativeinspiration #PSEBeforeAndAfter #ad

“The sooner you learn to enjoy solving problems, the sooner you’ll be happy in this business.” An article I read recently changed my perspective on the way I look at work. I have had this thought on my mind a lot lately. This idea that just like anything in life, work is not perfect. I feel like everyone is pitching the perfect career, your “dream job”. Well, guess what? Your dream job comes with plenty of problems. If you don’t learn to embrace that side of work then you will be miserable even in your dream job. Embrace all the aspects of your dream job.

I did this quick little #wonderdoodle in response to the art prompt Freedom. Travel, airplanes, being in the sky....having the time and money to do so...those things meant freedom to me on that day. As it turns out, that's not what the #doodle had to say...⠀ 🎨 ⠀ When I deciphered the #doodlescode using an @arttherapy journal technique, it turns out that the image had more to do with faith, and preparedness. This image was created not long after the orange-orb doodle I posted the other day....the one in which I was feeling burnt out and wanting to give up on my big publishing projects. Anyway, the doodle reminded me I was on my way to my destination...personally and professionally...and it provided several tips for "getting ready to fly"....basically, tips for spiritual, mental, and emotional preparedness.⠀ 🎨⠀ I just love this aspect of the #wonderdoodles....the symbols and metaphors are surprising, relevant, succinct. They are fun, effortless, and take only a few minutes to do...and without fail, they start my day with confidence, reassurance, and a fresh perspective. They will do the same for you! I'll be sharing these methods in a soon-to-be released e-book, coming soon. Stay tuned!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #creativityfound #CreativeLifestyle #Creativity #Creativepreneur #CreativeJedi #SheRose #Artist #Artists #ThisIsTucson #DoorCountyArtist #ArtYogaWellness #DrawingOnStrengths #ArtistsofInstagram #ArtistsOnInstagram #yogadoodles #creativeinspiration #arttherapylife #arttherapymania #CreativeWriting #writerslife #selflove #selfcare #inspiration

Second stop, Bankside Gallery for the National Original Print Exhibition juried by Peter Lloyd. Some great pieces, only a few of which I’m posting. . Most drawn to linocuts and screenprints (surprise! surprise!) eg Lauren Curl’s work ‘Four’, screen print on birch plywood with laser engraving, and Claire Cutts piece ‘Into the Valley’, screenprinted on black paper and linocuts. Getting properly fed with creative inspiration. 🙌🏽 . @banksidegallery #printmaking #printmakingart #screenprinted #screenprinting #londonartgallery #londonart #londonartscene #findinginspiration #ilovescreenprinting #ilovescreenprint #creativeinspiration #creativeprintmaking #whatinspiresme #artresearch

Day 48 Doing a lil thinkin about the scene locations for my play and how they could work better to help characters develop or exert more dramatic conflict. Noodles with some ideas, decided I liked some voices already made and identified and couple of scenes that could be fit from being relocated -I find external and environmental conflict a lot harder to think about than internal or interpersonal conflict. What helped was asking myself what a scene is supposed to be doing and also relating it to the themes of the play e.g. a theme is about control so how could scene locations empower or disempower the main character’s sense of control in the story? Still feel a bit unsure about some of the choices, but have got some more scene-specie questions to keep in mind when I rewrite. Next I’m going to look at some other plays for inspiration. #playwriting #playwright #writingcommunity #amwriting #theatre #characterconflict #365creativedoing #everydayartist #howimakethings #creatingonpurpose #howcreative #howtobecreative #creativemotivation #creativeideas #creativeinspiration #creativepractice #creativeprocess #creativeproject #makingstuff #makingstuffhappen #makingstuffhappenonedayatatime #brightonandhoveblogger #brightoncreatives #creativeencouragement #writer #artist #inspirational #showingup #creativemess #learning

I felt this one today. It’s time. Time to raise my standards at least! I’m starting to let old parasitic relationships go and beginning to focus on my true friends. The circle may be getting tinier but I have always felt quality is more important than quantity. Don’t be afraid of the solitude that comes with raising your standards! It can feel quite nice 👍🏻 ⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ *⠀ #quoteoftheday #motivationalquotes #inspirationalquotes #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #quotesoftheday #quotesaboutlife #quotesdaily #quoted #quotestoinspire #quotegram #quotestoremember #quotetoliveby #quotesilove #motivationalwords #motivationoftheday #motivationiskey #artistsofig #creativeinspiration #createsomething #createshareinspire #createsomethingeveryday #inspirationoftheday #inspirationquotes #inspirationdaily

We can all benefit from an extra dose of motivation every now and then, right? And the Internet seems chock full of clever little quotes about it. My current go-to is: Henry Matisse's "Creativity takes courage." Share your favorite in the comments below—we can all use a little push!

Relaxing for a few days at the Grampians with the fam. And yes, I am hiking up Hollow Mountain with my handbag #alwaysstylish Actually, it may be because I can't be bothered changing bags (anyone else get that??) This mountain is where my husband @ginkgo_productions used to go often as a kid. He and his brothers used to pretend it was the Misty Mountains from the Lord of the Rings. I have to agree, it's similar to how I imagine it! ⁠ What are you doing these school holidays?⁠ ⁠ #lordoftherings #lordoftheringsgeeks #thegrampians #hollowmountain #mumboss #savvybusinessowner #girlpreneur #lmbdw #pursueyourpassion #digitaldesign #galtribe #bloggersau #stayinspired #mycreativecommunity #girlbossau #mycreativecollective #creativeinspiration #creativelife #creativepreneur #hollowmountain #melbournedesign #beinspired #womeninbusiness #mumsinbusiness #businesschicks #lmbdw #communityovercompetition #womenempoweringwomen #womenwhoconnect

someday i'mma be a tumbleweed. #dreams #creativelife #creativeinspiration #Repost @vintagebooks (with @report.for.insta ) ... @shakespeareandcoparis is one of our absolute favourite international bookshops. Fun fact: they invite thousands of young writers, artists and intellectuals to stay at the shop. These guests are called Tumbleweeds. All that is asked of them is to read a book a day, help at the shop for a few hours a day and produce a one-page autobiography. Would you go and stay? . . #bookshopsofparis #bookshopsoftheworld #bestbookshops #instabook #instaread #bookshops

If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely - Roald Dahl. As a little girl I was obsessed with all of Roald Dahl’s books. I remember my teacher always trying to get me to read something by another author but I would refuse! I just thought he was sooooo funny 😂😍.

Cleaned the studio after a busy week filling orders and I can finally say I’m caught up from my vacation two weeks ago. Then I removed all the crystals from this chandelier because I’m going for a more minimal look. 😂
