Creating Practical Magic with Mat Denney


“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”

Elizabeth Gilbert


On this week’s show, I am am chatting with the co-creator of my Practical Magic Activation Deck Mat Denney. Mat shares his personal journey through his creative path, and shares the inside workings of his brain and process. We also share our journey in working together on the creative process for bringing the Practical Magic Activation Deck to life, and what it’s like working in collaboration on a project in the way that we did.


On the show we explore:

  • The conflict between order and chaos, and how it can be fundamental to the creative process

  • Why surprises and accidents can lead to something beautiful

  • How collaboration and the sum of our experiences make for a great ‘creative casserole’

  • How to find the magic in the mundane

  • How exploration of the mind and unconscious creativity led to the magic in Practical Magic..
