The Borrowers

I first became a celebrated borrower of ideas in senior school.  At the time, it wasn’t considered to be a particularly positive step down the road to academic success although, evidently, I thought it was a brilliant move.  These days we tend to look on ‘borrowing ideas’ as a perfectly acceptable starting point pretty much across the board.  Indeed, this may be the ideal moment to throw myself into a debate entitled, ‘Do Original Ideas Exist?’  But I’m not going to.  Instead, using words like ‘inspiration’ and ‘motivation’, I’m going to show you something I painted recently.

There is work to be done, I know, but it’s my starting point.
