    It's sort of the Dadaist approach to design, I guess.

    You're engaging in linear thinking and being too literal about it. If you've settled on working with the idea of "pride," keep in mind that it's an emotional state and not a physical thing....

    The style reminds of cut and paste punk posters of the 1970s. I think the thing about those posters is they were kind of anti-design.

    I think rabbits are going to be the next cats. You should do a series of videos about rabbits that are freelance graphic designers and the business issues they face.

    I had that happen to me once in my life. I wasn't even dreaming. I couldn't replicate the situation again though. Maybe it was my unicorn.

      Candles. Be very careful with candles for your own safety. Do not leave candles burning unattended or near curtains. Turn off lava lamps - there is usually a recommended maximum time to leave them on. The last major student house fire in Bristol was caused by a lava lamp.

                    my daughters Lava Lamp is on a timer that comes on in the morning and later in the evening for a few hours, the timer keeps it from being on 24/7 yet it is on when she is around to see/enjoy it.
