Creative Sparks

Today’s toon was inspired by a Twitter post I made over the weekend. I was feeling a little creatively burnt out and shared my concerns with my friends and followers. The flurry of responses and tips led to the ‘toon up above.

A few books I’m planning to check out include:

Creative Grab Bag: Inspiring Challenges for Artists, Illustrators, and Designers

and

Creative Sparks: An Index of 150+ Concepts, Images and Exercises to Ignite Your Design Ingenuity.

Both look like excellent reads, particularly for someone like myself.

So… How do you handle writer’s block?

    Sometimes the panic that ensues from “writers/creators block” is worse than the block itself….and the expression on Kyle’s face catches that panic perfectly! ;)

    Agreed, DarthCalvin. Some days the writing is effortless – other days, it’s incredibly tough to get inspired.

Tell me what you think!
