The power of creative thought

I had the good luck to illustrate a column by David Sherlock, the chief inspector of the Adult Learning Inspectorate. His point was about the importance of difference;

"success in globalised economies lies in difference, not in following the standardised herd.

I have heard a German admiringly call the British "genius bodgers". He meant 'creative, anarchic, original, disputational, inventive and amiably odd'. If we want to develop a successful skills strategy, one that will hold our place in the world's financial big league, those are the things that will have to be its foundation."

He's talking my language - and it made drawing the picture a pleasure too.
