I first met John Murphy back in 2003, when we did a podcast about his first book, Stupid Sock Creatures: Making Quirky, Lovable Figures from Cast-off Socks.
That book spawned a lot more publishing for John, and now he’s back with a sequel to the original, called Return of the Stupid Sock Creatures: Evolutions, Mutations, and Other Creations. In this book, he invited some of his longtime readers to reinterpret his original Stupid Creatures concept. He was curious to see what his ideas could become if they were passed through other minds and hands.
I love what John has to say about sharing creativity in this video. And you’ll fall in love with the sock creatures we share here. Everybody does.
