Welcome back to the conversation on the creative process! I have been engaging in conversations with the makers and creatives here at Make-It Springfield about the challenges they face in their process and the support they have in their lives.
In this post, please enjoy an interview I did with Ace after he participated in our Lego Car Challenge this past June!
Jamila: What was your inspiration for your car?
Ace: A car that goes fast and far.
Jamila: How did you make it through the challenges of making your car?
Ace: I started by doing one tire and it went far so I started increasing the numbers. Then I got four tires and it got a little faster. Then I added the pieces on the bottom and when it went down it didn’t break because those pieces were protecting it.
Jamila: Who is someone who has supported your creativity?
Ace: My dad. He kept finding different ways that I could push it around to make it move.
Thank you Ace!
