On several sites I confidently announce,"I'm an all-around creative excited to help design your next project." Create (creative, creator, creativity, creation) is a fabulous concept to consider and imagine. Only God creates ex nihilo – out of nothing – but passion, ability, and tendencies toward creation, creativity, and re-creation form a major part of God's creating humanity (that's us!) in a multi-faceted imago dei. I'm a working graphic artist-designer who sometimes cautions students and clients there's probably nothing or not much of anything that's truly original, but many times we can re-assemble existing elements or concepts to create or invent something never before seen. I enjoy picking up a color combination from over here, a drawing style from back there, a graphic imagining I noticed on that billboard they just put up on the corner.
With a hint of semi-creative originality, I did a google image search for the name of this blog – "desert spirit's fire" – and made a couple of screen captures of some of the results. I used the horizontal one to create my header banner for this FMF post.
