051 - More Like Play Than Work

Day 51. I found this quote by James Ogilvy and liked it, so I used Adobe Photoshop Touch for iPad to make this coloured background, then imported it into Keynote for iOS, added a text layer with the quote, then while in play mode in Keynote, took a snapshot of the screen (since there is no JPEG export from Keynote). Then I used the image as the background in the Tellagami app, created a character, then used the speech synthesiser to speak the quote. I believe they call it "app smashing" when you go from app to app like that.

In case you're interested, here is the actual quote... "Too much of our work amounts to the drudgery of arranging means toward ends, mechanically placing the right foot in front of the left and the left in front of the right, moving down narrow corridors toward narrow goals. Play widens the halls. Work will always be with us, and many works are worthy. But the worthiest works of all often reflect an artful creativity that looks more like play than work."

That's something I'm really finding with this daily create project... Creativity looks far more like play than work.
