Create your own macro images and learning to become an artist.

Today my special guest is Don Komarechka from Canada. He’s going to share his very funny story of how he almost shocked his cat and the electric pickle experiment. He’s going to inspire us with his incredible soap bubble frozen fluorescent UV light image which is just amazing.

Then in the create section we are going to talk all about the creativity goals, getting ideas that you can be more creative and he’s also going to explain to us exactly how to create this frozen bubbles that he creates in winter. Don is a very interesting guy. He’s a very smart guy.
