Interesting. So…organization. Perhaps he’s a bit of a left-brainer after all. And he eats breakfast. I’m so glad to hear it.
I’ll answer it in reverse. I’m an extremely organized person. In fact, I have a hard time creating anything if everything isn’t already organized prior to me starting. I have to organize things and make sure they’re in their place before I can start. I have these great holders for my pens, and the brushes, I like to have everything where I can see it. It’s a much more romantic notion when you walk into an artist’s studio and it’s a mess but unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?) that‟s not me, I’m super organized. And to answer the first part, I find my inspiration everywhere. That’s actually one of the center points for creativity, in my opinion. Learning how, if you don’t know how to innately, find beauty in everything. From the most mundane situations to the most horrific situations, to understand that there IS no such thing as “anything” there is only our perception. We view occasions, circumstances, objects with our experience. Our experience includes what we’ve been conditioned with, what we see every day, what we ate for breakfast, all those things. So by learning to find beauty in everything you’re kind of transcending all of those normalities. To be inspired means you really have to witness something beautiful, you know? So if you can find beauty in everything then there‟s never any shortage of inspiration. Does that make sense?
