So I looked this up. Animistic thinking means ascribing human qualities to inanimate objects..
For example. A little while ago I went to the V&A for some inspiration and then tea. Afterwards I made some drawings. As I drew I was thinking about people I know and so the jugs and the bowls took on characters. Magic! Very satisfying too. I can recommend. To be continued..
