I have had fairly clean hands working in the design/creative industry for the last 13 years. Using a keyboard and a mouse working on large corporate accounts is an amazing job, absolutely love it. When I rediscovered how inspiring it actually is to get your hands dirty by tapping into my roots in fine arts. I have noticed that an entirely new creative arena has opened in my mind.
The downside to getting your hands covered in paint is the big meeting the next day. Oh well, I told a semi-okay joke and played it off.
