What's going on?

I feel like this community started strong, but is starting to dwindle. Let's change this!

Here's a question for the group. What inspires you? How do you keep track of things you randomly see that give you inspiration?

This is an old piece from a few years back that I recently got to pick up from my professor.

The assignment for class was to portray an object using only lines. This piece also happens to be the inspiration for my etsy shop name, HoleyHoot Designs.

Detail: Line work.

What inspires me? Anything and everything. I'll see things while I'm out and about and will be struck by some part of it. The inspiration can come from the color of an object, its make, typography, or some other element.

How do I keep track? I usually snap a pic with my phone and upload it to the app EverNote. I can add notes for each picture I upload, so it makes keeping track of the particulars of an object or project I'd like to start easy. I also have a notebook I keep that I'll glue, paste, staple (whatever) pictures from any magazines I buy.

Also LIFE inspires me. Like. Every goddamn thing ever.

Where is this drawing you speak of? I see no drawing. Haha. Is it time for a new topic? IDK.

New topic on Sunday! And I can't find my camera. It must be at home (but I'm going home tomorrow night).

Unless you want a shitty camera picture. XD Did you put your piece up on Etsy???

Not yet. I'm odd and like things in fives, so I'm waiting until I have five completed things before I upload any listings. I'm working on two Scentsy burners and a really cute sweater, and I should have another painting finished by the time I go to bed tonight.

Lovely lines, absolutely lovely.

I see pictures that inspire me, things that give me ideas, I save them all in a folder and look at them and hope inspiration strikes.

Thank you. It took forever. And of course by forever I mean a few weeks of non-stop work plus two all-nighters.
