Thus has been a lifesaver in times of creative blocks due to sleep deprivation (yeah pare What helps you get into creative mode?

To get into creative mode

Similar to exercise I do a warmup. For example I will start off in my sketch book drawing abstract for about 10 to 15 mins. Then switch (for 20 mins) to sketch out as many ideas on my current project say a logo. I found this helped me speed up my brainstorm phase and got more interesting results. What do you do to get into #creative mode?

Where do you get #creative inspiration from?

Like the change of season, my inspiration for art changes. My main source is mother nature and the majestic willow tree. I love to walk along them and watch the leaves and branches move to the wind. Listening to the leaves it all helps clear my mind and helps to focus myself. I tend to find them end of summer leading into fall weather. I love the willow tree and even as a child loved to sit leaning on the trunk of the tree. Somethings never change. Where do you get art inspiration from?
