My mind has been devoid of artistic inspiration for what seems too long. I have the Artist’s Way – “a twelve-week program to recover your creativity from a variety of blocks, including limiting beliefs, fear, self-sabotage, jealousy, guilt, addictions, and other inhibiting forces, replacing them with artistic confidence and productivity” but have yet to complete it. Some of the ideas are completely far-fetched and I have difficulty taking them seriously.
I started using the vi.sualize.us tool to begin collecting images that make me want to make art.. pictures and drawings with one element or another that inspire me. Someone’s profile, the way one’s hair curls, colors and tones. I can bookmark any image with the Firefox add-on and tag it. It’s like del.icio.us for images, quite convenient for what I’ve been using it for.
Off to google anatomical diagrams and sketching exercises.
