To all my fellow creators out there…here’s a question:
Who inspires you? Who’s work do you take in to jump start your creativity when you’re feeling stuck…or just bored?
It’s ok if you have several. I know I do. For me I tend to stay away from the super conceptual visual artists as I like to do my best to stay original (though it’s fairly impossible) and will instead check up on photographers like Chris Weeks or Russell James. I love how no matter what the situation seems to be they are able to catch the core of their subject. That’s my inspiration, that’s what I look for. It gets me thinking on how I can dive into my subject even more than I do now. Especially in portraiture. After all, that is the point of the genre. Right?
Going back to conceptual work though…I listen to a lot of classical music and instrumental movie scores. Especially when I’m not familiar with the movie and can let the music tell a story with me filling in the visuals.
So, what about you?
See you tomorrow,
