-How to feel inspired?
It's probably the question that everybody wants to know and we all have been in the position of feeling bored and uninspired; I guess is a natural human feel but one thing I know inspiration won't come out of nothing.
-Recently I came across an article about David Lynch in The Times where he mentions: Ideas are like fishing. I can't agree more with this, If you are lacking of ideas or inspiration get out there and do something. Of course the perfect scenario would be to take a plane to an exotic place whenever we want but that is completely unrealistic - by doing something I mean take a different route to go to work, walk more, eat your lunch outside your office, visit new places, cafes, parks, try different food, clothing style - something you haven't worn before because you think isn't "you".
-Sketch, write that was the first rule I learnt at university when I was studying Design, to create something there is always a process..So take a Notepad with you everywhere! Ideas come and go so you need to hunt and write them down because believe me you will forget about them.
-Just write a word, an image or something in your note pad then when you are at home, think of how you can make it real! Make it happen!
-Even if you live in a small town you can still find inspiration everywhere! Yes, I know big cities like New York, Paris or London are full of inspiration but you'll find inspiration by living your life in whatever town you are right now! We have an amazing tool called imagination and we are free to play with it.
-You'll find inspiration in: Trees, books,Rain, cafes, walking, markets, people in the bus, music, flavours, textures, ink, grannies, punks, magazines, newspapers, air, sand, architecture, streets, galleries, photographs, old, new, ugly, Sunshine, fire, dark, sea...the simple things in life.
