I was feeling oddly "off" this evening (possibly it's the strong winds out there), so I started going through my old books and found a couple buried in the back of one of my bookcases, settled down on the couch with a cup of coffee and leafed through them. There was a lot of inspiration there, so before I knew it I was at my work table trying a few ideas out. The perfect antidote to the funk.
I wanted to make poster art. So I started with the word ART. You have to start somewhere!
If you're in a funk, go and make something. You'll feel so much better and you'll surprise yourself.
