promised on twitter the other day to talk about creative processes and inspiration; i've been getting a lot of questions about that lately. so first to recap... some things to get the ball rolling, or deal with creative block:
1) physically go do something different, like garden or jog or punch ninjas. not only is a change of scene a way to rejigger your brain, but physical activity increases blood flow in the brain, which physically stimulates your thinking cap. SCIENCE, man.
2) likewise, do something random like draw a bunch of fat old ladies at the grocery store. drawing something neew (for you), that is not tied to what you're "supposed" to be doing, can help loosen up your brain. also, there is almost definitely going to be some point in your life where you need to draw fat old ladies shopping. even if you're not an artist. even if i have to personally make it happen.
