With most of our lives now living through the internet and technology, its getting harder and harder to find our unique voice for our creative projects. When most of your inspiration comes from other artists and online photos, your mind can’t make any new connections based on your own experiences in life. But if you step back from technology every once in a while and go hunting for your muse in your own life, your creative work becomes more authentic. It will reflect more of who you are as a person because its coming from your own experiences and the world around you.
Alisa Burke recently released a free workshop called Finding Your Muse. I would highly suggest you check it out! She gives tips on going out and looking for inspiration in your everyday life… an essential skill for becoming a true creative no matter what your medium is.
Whether or not you decide to go through her free class, be sure to take the time to look around you for inspiration. Don’t keep your eyes focused on the internet. Maybe plan an “artist date” with yourself where you go out to a special place like a museum, the beach, or a park and just take everything in around you. Bring a sketch book or a camera and document shapes, colors, patterns, or anything that inspires you. You will quickly see how your creative work can greatly benefit from it.
