Throughout human history, games were about winning or losing.

Author James P. Carse extends this concept beautifully in Finite and Infinite Games: “A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play.”

Which game are you playing with your art?

It’s a question worth asking everyday. Is this decision, this attitude, sending you down a short game or long game? The same energy that we spend chasing rewards and likes can be refocused to loving our craft and shipping our best work.

Keep your eyes on the journey, not the prize.

This month’s global exploration of Game was chosen by our Liège chapterand illustrated by Jeffrey Phillips. This month is presented by our global partner MailChimp.

Photos from our Courage event with Cristian Staal will be appearing shortly. There’s some stellar shots of our good looking morning people. #cmbne #cmcourage

Yes you is! Our live graphic recorder @jimmydrawsstuff will be at our event again this month live illustrating the talk of Cristian Staal. Before the talk however, he will be illustrating our attendees along with their icebreaker answers to the question: “What’s the most courageous thing you’ve done in 2018?” We’ll be airdropping then straight to your phone at the event for you to share and there’ll be a prize for one lucky morning person who shares the drawing and tags Jimmy Patch! #cmbne #cmcourage

This month we welcome our very own CM Brisbane Instagram storyteller Emilie Guillemain to take to the stage.

Emilie is a storyteller propelled by an innate curiosity for the people and environment around her. Studying and practicing as a writer since 2011, she has worked with a number of print and digital publications including Broadsheet Melbourne, The Urban List, and sustainability magazine Peppermint.

After exploring alternative modes of storytelling during 2017, Emilie has recently begun @alongside.id - a project which takes her into the homes of her favourite artists to live alongside them, discover how they live, work and play, and to share these stories with the world. Come and hear Emilie speak on #cmcuriosity on Friday February 23 at Mas & Miek Ceramic House in Newstead and discover how the practice of harnessing curiosity is an art within itself.

❤️ Hello February! Our theme this month is Curiosity.“Curiosity is many things—a trait, a mindset, and a skill. To wonder about the things you don’t know and to actively fill those gaps with knowledge is to consciously enrich your life.” This month’s theme was chosen by our friends at the Malmö chapter and illustrated by Oelwein. Thank you to MailChimp, Adobe, and WordPress.com for supporting our global creative community this month.
