The Creative Process / by Bill Frakes

A few days ago, I went to get my hair cut.

One of the simple pleasures of my life is watching the creative process at work.

From inspirational speaker Marco Antonio Torres crafting a lecture on art after looking at a barista delicately putting a milk message on the top of a latte to Professor William Rankin using quantum physics to explain medievalism. Or my sister Elizabeth crafting anything magically with cloth to Laura shaping a coherent  message from my disjointed images and thoughts.

This was a new one. My favorite stylist Lisa Hershman used a photograph I took of her hair years ago -- a present actually for her husband -- and had the contours of the interior of her studio built to replicate the lines of that image.

Just wish my hair could look that good.
