Where do you go for design inspiration?

I’ve got a bit of business-related design work to do and I need some inspiration. I’ve been sending the blog link to quite a few creative people who undertake design in one way or another. Any thoughts about where are you going for inspiration these days woyuld be much appreciated. Places, books, websites, magazines, anything else.

I noticed yesterday that Diamond Geezer went to the Design Museum as part of his ‘exploring London’ week. I’ve been talking about going there for a few months now, perhaps I’ll pop into town later and have a look.

I'm about to tell people about this site

meIt’s all slightly scary. I feel that there’s not much to see yet, that the cushions aren’t straight and there’s still bits on the carpet which the vacuum cleaner didn’t quite pick up.

But anyway, welcome to all visitors who have arrived because of one of my e-mails, a link from The Wibsite or a link from somewhere else. Please say hello in the comments. My intention is to post daily here from now on, so there should be plenty to see and look at if you keep coming back.

The Dave Walker Guide to the Church

I am pleased to announce that, all being well, my new cartoon series will be appearing weekly in the Church Times from this Friday onwards. It is entitled ‘The Dave Walker Guide to the Church’ and is… well, what it says on the tin really.

If you want to see it you’ll need to buy the paper as the series is exclusive to the Church Times, for the time being at least. But don’t worry, there will be plenty of new material appearing here on the website too before too long.

My first day of self employment

Today is my first day as an officially self employed person.

I woke up determined to get going in an efficient and productive manner. I’ve been at Maddie_C’s house as it has been her Easter holiday but I was all set to return to my house this morning. So, I jumped into the van, turned the key and… nothing. Like a fool and an idiot I had left the parking light on for 3 days so nothing was happening. I summoned Maddie_C and we pushed the van back and forth to turn it around, discovering that a VW van really is quite a heavy beast when you have to push it. Fortunately with a slight incline it did jumpstart ok and I was able to be on my way without further ado.

I have put this post into a new ‘Essex Life’ category. I don’t know what other items will join it. Perhaps nothing, we shall see.
