Todd Shilkin and Jon Doust are creativeurgency.
Ok, so what is creativeurgency?
Obviously it's Jon and Todd.
But what do they do?
They lend themselves to folk in a creative block, or folk who need something
creative, very very quickly.
If you want to know more, you can Email Jon.
Or even Todd
Creative Urgency was born in a fertile fusion of two minds: Todd
Shilkin and Jon Doust.
The birth occurred because the two minds realised they had much
more creativity than they could cope with, deal with, utilise themselves.
They realised that the world was full of minds that struggled,
stumbled, sometimes shrank, when faced with the urgency to produce what others could willingly refer to as creative.
The world these days requires "creative solutions",
"innovation" and "originality".
Todd and Jon now travel the oblong of their inner minds, sitting
at coffee tables, in corporate offices, and on park benches, listening, absorbing, taking notes and spontaneously
interjecting with outrageous ideas.
Many are taken up, over and beyond and can be heard on CDs, seen
on video or read about, usually without any reference to the two genii behind the creative urgency that spored
Such is it so.
Some, once they have seen the light of day, disappear into the
ether of either nothingness or somethingness, never to be seen or heard again, or to be seen and heard on a grander
scale somewhere, somehow, someplace, never before imagined, for that is one essence of creativity - not always
breathtakingly original, but rather newly slanted, angled or juxtaposed.
In short, these boys will work with your creativity, your numbness,
your limbo, whatever, let you take the credit, the plaudits, and disappear. For they do this work, not for the
ego, yes for the money, and, more importantly, because they must, for it is the only way they can still the maddening,
blaring, rush hour of their personal, inner, creative space.
In this photo, Jon Doust, on the far left, and Todd Shilkin, second from right,
are helping it, the movie. The lovely person in the middle is Kestie Morassi, she's one of the stars. The other
people, Werzel (the big bloke) and Kingsley (the frightened bloke behind Todd) are Perth comedians and actors.
They were helping too. They were supposed to make Todd and Jon look good, but they looked better, which means Todd
and Jon will never work with them again... or the director... he's the bloke in the middle, below. His name is
Darren Ashton. (And, privately, Jon and Todd think he's a genius.)

It may not be pretty, but, please remember, it's only imitation.
Jon and Todd recently lent their skills to ANTA (Australian National Training
Authority), along with the Greatest Folk Singer in History, Bernard Carney, to create small humorous segments on
a CD of essays along the theme of Advancing Lifelong Learning.
Jon often lends himself to his home town and did so recently when a mob from
BridgeFM, Bridgetown's local radion station won an award for streaming Blues Festival music on the net. Brilliant!
Here he is with Kim Perrier, Jackie Gill and Marie Perrier.
And the WAITTA Award: Special Commendation in the Regional Category.
And here's Jon right after the announcement.
