Birds of a Feather

From all 4 points of the planet, people are flocking against the Fustercluck.

The forces holding them back from creating their best work.

And no matter what your discipline, keep this in mind about your work. It’s simple, but not easy. That’s the paradox of the creative world. At its core, it’s nothing more than problem/solution with a twist. Very simple stuff, right? So, if it’s so simple, why isn’t it equally as easy? In a nutshell: human beings. Even with our bulging frontal lobes and opposable thumbs we find a way to muck things up. Creating one big, nasty Fustercluck.

Sadly, there’s no solvent or spray to untangle this hairball of human folly. But together, we birds of a feather can create a global community designed to clear the way for better creative.
