Musings on Inspiration

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

One piece of advice regarding having my own business that has made the most sense to me and that I’ve really taken to heart is to: keep up to date in your field. I feel like this is especially true when you are in the design field. It’s always good to keep up with new trends and to keep up a constant dialogue with the art world. No artist, or designer can be on their own island, our work is a constant reflection of the culture that we live in. To deny this, is to deny the very essence of our humanity.

With this in mind, I have amassed a plethora of design, art, fashion and news blogs on my google reader that I try with all earnestness to read through every day. When I see an image that I find particularly interesting I “pin it” onto a visual bookmarking site called pinterest (click on the link to follow my boards and inspiration on pinterest).

Over the last months I see so many images a day, I’ve become seriously picky on what I pin. If I pinned everything that was even slightly nice, it would be completely pointless, since most of the images on these blogs are stunning. So, I only pin an image when it stops me in my tracks. Here’s where I get to this painting. This painting has absolutely stopped me in my tracks, in a way that hasn’t happened in a LONG time. Hera by Tom Bagshaw is haunting and beautiful. The subject seems to pierce you with her sad gaze. I love it! How does it make you feel?

The Art of Nicoz Balboa

I adore these illustrations by Nicoz Balboa. I think they fall under the category of pop surrealism, but I’m not sure. Whatever they are, I adore their feel and look. Especially the first one with the zebra in it.
