Hello friends, long-time-no-post! :) Walking home from the gym early this morning I was smiling as I realized that I’ve found myself in a routine at school and I’m not nearly as tired as I was the first couple of weeks. It is going well!
Something I’ve been learning as I am being immersed in projects is that in order to be an artist, designer, or creator in general you must constantly have your eyes on the lookout for inspiration everywhere. In order for me to productively produce project after project, week after week I need to have a supply of ideas for colour combos, lines, shapes, textures, compositions, and more! Also, Pinterest doesn’t cut it for me – it can be more of a productivity block then an inspiration source as it wastes precious time! I’m finding myself flipping through books and magazines in the library, pulling out my camera to snap photos often, and jotting ideas down on everything. I’m sure, like my schedule, I will find a routine for creative projects. So I am genuinely interested, can you pinpoint things that fire you up? What are your sources for creative inspiration?
My family and I flew down to Colorado for the last week of August. We were visiting my aunt, uncle, and cousins who live there and are surrounded by so much nature. We hiked up mountains, drove through canyons, took too many photos of the endless, gorgeous and ever changing skies, and did some delicious cooking over a campfire! I can for sure say we all had an amazing time and our expectations of Colorado were blown away.
