The creative process is unique to each person. We do not simply switch on our minds, and eureka – come up with the solution. Some days we are bursting with ideas, other days a visit to the Art Gallery, cafe, a walk in the park, a drive out of town, will stimulate the creative juices. Sometimes when you are thinking of something totally unrelated the idea will ‘pop’ into you head. Yes – good things take time. To have a foundation of ideas, experience, and motivation are the key. Find what really inspires you.
The following article in the Idealog Magazine is worth reading about the creative process – Dick Frizzell ‘knows where to look…’ – Pip Cheshire ‘inspired in art galleries’…. – Nicky Foreman ‘Europe; Bach; postcards…’ – Neil Roberts ‘a bottle of Bordeaux, a red pen and some paper… doodles… walk away… sleep on it…. ‘
