Ferrari F40 Goes Camping, Snow Drifts With Chains

Takeshi Mimura, you are my hero.

This is the kind of thing I’d do if I owned a Ferrari F40. Or any extremely expensive car. Cars are meant to be driven and enjoyed. Yes, they can also be art, but few should be relegated to museum duty. In case you are unaware, the F40 is considered by many — including yours truly — to be the greatest modern Ferrari. And I'd argue it's second only to perhaps the many iterations of the Ferrari 250 as the greatest Ferrari of all time.

The story unfolds in two parts.

The Steal Like An Artist Journal

The Steal Like An Artist Journal (Amazon) is the second journal up in a larger journaling experiment I’m conducting. This journal is meant to spark creativity by providing activities for the reader to perform. The author, Austin Kleon, wrote the book Steal Like An Artist (Amazon) which inspired the journal as well as Show Your Work! (Amazon). Each book focuses on creativity: the first on the act of creation and the second on sharing creation. I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend both.

If you’d like to follow along, I’ll be posting each daily activity I perform in the journal for 30 days on Instagram using hashtag #StealLikeAnArtist.

Everything is a Remix

Speaking of Steal Like An Artist, it reminded me of the wonderful video series Everything is a Remix. The creator, Kirby Ferguson, posits that everything is in some way a remix. That is, creation doesn’t exist in a vacuum and all work is in some way influenced by the work of others. Originally produced in a four-part series (1, 2, 3, 4), Kirby has since revamped the content and rolled all four into Everything is a Remix Remastered.

Highly recommended.
