Artist and Designer Steve McCarthy uses a gardening analogy to emphasis the importance of looking after your mental health. The gardener is maintaining his plants to produce those ‘lightbulb’ moments that we all know and love.
"When I was feeling frustrated as a child, I would head out to the garden, sit amongst the rosemary and doc leaves and stare at the trees, until my dad told me to help him plant something or dig a hole for him. It was in these idle moments I learnt to let my mind wander, to plant the seeds of all my hopes and dreams, and let my ideas grow. “ - Steve McCarthy
