“Do not quench your inspiration and your imagination; do not become the slave of your model.”
- Vincent van Gogh
Inspiration is, for me, a funny thing. I get inspired more by an emotion or feeling than an actual thought or expression; a lot of my work is created from facts and concepts, but the seed of it always stems from an emotion.
I have a collection of favourites of work which I've found on deviantART which inspires me because their visual evokes a feeling which sparks inspiration in me and drives me to create. You can browse the collection, but I'm going to share some of my favourite selections from it with you now. Hopefully you'll find something which inspires you within.
Now it's your turn; share with me the art which inspires you. I'd love to see your collections of inspiration or individual pieces, please share.
