Inspiration is something that every artist searches for, sometimes it can come from the most unexpected of places and for me, sometimes it doesn’t come at all.
I love to draw, to create something completely new, but at times I don’t know what to draw and that leaves me stumped. This problem seems to rear it’s head most often in the summer when I am at home, working my summer job and helping my family around the house. It is not the issue of finding time to create, as I ensure that I have about ten to fifteen minutes set aside every day, even if just for a quick sketch because a sketch becomes much more in a matter of minutes.
So, in times like these when my inspiration is running low, I go outside and explore my home city of Philadelphia. It is a place full of different cultures, people and life and I adore exploring and seeing new scenes come to life before me. It isn’t hard to find something beautiful near my home, be it a mural or a pop-up gallery that has artworks I hadn’t seen before.
So, for me, my inspiration is my city, my home. But at times I can’t help but wonder what inspires others and keeps them creating.
