During my flight back from Los Angeles today, the stranger in the center seat chatted me about Sociallist. (The dear side project I won’t shut up about; I was drawing frames during that terrible few minutes of no electronics ;)
He loved the idea and pitched one of his own to me: a vinyl app. Intriguing…
The best part? Turns out he wasn’t an ideas guy, but simply a guy who’s been traveling the world for the last decade enroute to Yosemite National Park. Has no stake in this industry.
It was clear he had a great grasp of the vinyl world (for the record, I know nothing about vinyl, pun intended) since it was enough to get me to sketch up his thoughts.
That was refreshing. The 1:25 flight passed very quickly as a result. A conversation between strangers who came from different worlds united by an inkling of wanting to create. No ulterior motives aside from a fleeting connection.
I parted with knowledge of his whereabouts for the summer and he parted with my sketch.
