“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson
Creativity is vitally important, yet so much of our world discourages creative expression. It's put on the back burner in our schools, and in American culture especially consumption as valued over producing new creative work.
I aim to do my part to change this trend. The creative process has been a part of my life since I was scribbling on couches with permanent marker, and with everything I make, I try to help you exercise your creativity and inspire creativity in your families and social groups. The act of creation is so much fun; I give you a place to start.
Creative drawing sheets
A good place to start is with my creative drawing sheets, 25 pages of creative inspiration. You can download for free here. They're fun printables that encourage creativity and stretch the imagination.
I'm Andrew Miller, also known as AndHeDrew. I'm a designer living in Ohio. I love making things, spending time with my Wife and daughters, and playing games. I make my own games, most of which are free.

The story of The Cloud Dungeon
The Cloud Dungeon is a creative papercraft game night in a book, which I put on Kickstarter with the modest goal of raising $2,000. Over the course of the Kickstarter, 1,946 backers pledged $30,446 to make the game a reality. I continue to be amazed, thankful, and humbled by the amazing response, and all of the opportunities that have come my way because of my little book.
