THE CLUBHOUSE THEORY

As a child, I grew up in far north Queensland, Australia, with two younger siblings; a brother and a sister. I will always remember the day our parents came home with a truck-full of timber to build our very own clubhouse in the back yard. We spent most of our childhood days in there, playing until our mother would call us in at night, it was “our space”.

Even as I write this, I smile, when I think about what that clubhouse meant to us... the adventures we had, the video games we played, the movies we watched, the comics we read, the cartoons that made us laugh, the sleepovers and the late nights with kids of the neighbourhood... the nostalgia of it all.

I am often accused of being a “big-kid”. I never graduated into adulthood per se... I must have missed the memo. I still get wildly enthusiastic about the small things. I still watch cartoons. I still read comics. I still dress up. I still play video games. I still fantasize, I still imagine, I still draw... I guess that is why I have made a living as a Designer and Visual Artist - I get paid to use my imagination.

By living the life of a “big-kid”, I have achieved my greatest creativity and produced my best work. I want others to celebrate being a “big-kid” too. Our childhood may be over, but that doesn't mean playtime is. ClubHouse Collective - this is Childhood’s House, because within every grown-up there is a child that wants to play, every adult has an inner-child.

I never wanted to be a grown up anyway. I always wanted to be Astro Boy.
