When life hands you lemons, some make lemonade, but rather than go the traditional route Brock Davis might hand the lemon a guitar and some sunglasses and put it on a graphic tee. Davis’ ability to constantly think out of the box has helped him create ground-breaking work as a creative director, gaining international acclaim, winning just about every prestigious award in advertising possible. When he is not working on ads or editorial work, the Minneapolis-based artist keeps his creative juices flowing with t-shirt design, stop motion vines, and the clever iphone photography shown here. There is no such thing as ordinary through the eyes of Brock Davis and he shows there is more to everything than what meets the eye.[see_also]
In an interview with My Modern Met, Brock Davis offered tips for people who want to get more creative:
I think it’s important to not be afraid to fail. I have a lot of ideas, sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t. I just keep trying until it works and I learn from the times that it does not. I also think it’s good to always be a student. Absorb as much as you can, be a student of art, design and popular culture.
