One of the biggest challenges in any creative endeavor is the spark.. the spark is used to create something or to drive forward against obstacles. This spark comes from what we refer to as our influences. The things that inspire us to say “I can make that” or “I need to do that”. It’s canned that in any artistic endeavor the question is invariably asked “what are your influences?” which is really saying, “Who do you aspire to be like?”
Influences can be things that we disagree with, that motivate us. “I don’t want to be like that so I’m going to do this” In this series of posts I’m going to share what Inspires me.. What causes me to question things. There are many things that inspire me that run the gambit of the negative to the positive.
I’m also going to challenge you dear reader.. What influences you? What gets you up in the morning and working on something?
