My brother Andy and his business partner Luke are visiting Canberra to do some filming for an upcoming music video clip. I love hearing about Andy’s work (he and Luke run a Sydney-based creative agency SPR/PPL) as it’s so completely different from mine and I’m constantly amazed by the crazy, creative things he is able to do.
Tonight, as we sat around my dining room table while he put the finishing touches on his Grim Reaper-esque ‘gang’ jacket (a prop for the shoot), Andy told us about his day. The conversation went something like… ‘I didn’t have time to get to the post office to pick up my Styrofoam sculpting kit which I need to make five shark fins and a bee-hive, but I did manage to call our agent about organising a taxidermied polar bear, and I arranged for a fake palm tree to be delivered from Queensland’.
Umm… even on my most interesting, surprising days I couldn’t come close to topping that!
