How to re-ignite and become re-inspired.
Many times over the years I have reached a creative block. This wall where I lack imagination and drive. Here are a few ways I combat this slump
- Take a Hike
It sounds rude but a little fresh air does a lot for the creative juices. Being in nature and alone with my thoughts helps clear my mind.
- Head to the Museum
Again following with the stepping away from my work. I like to take time to see some of the artwork from those who came before me. The Getty is a place I frequent often since it is close.
- Surf the Web
Surfing the web is probably one of my go to ways of getting re inspired. Looking at my peirs work and even those who have a wildly different style from mine always jumpstart my mood for creating.
- Try Something Different
Over the years I have worked with a wide range of artistic mediums. These range from pencils, water colors, markers, spray paint, video, and photography. All of them can be helpful in breaking out of a norm I might be settling into. It shakes things up and helps me to continue to learn and grow as an artist.
