Scribblin’ Inspiration

Scribblin’ Inspiration


Inspiration is a funny thing– it can really come from anywhere. And while inspiration is all around us, sometimes it feels like there’s just a big roadblock between your head and your hands.


Creative prompts can be a great way to get the imagination rolling (see here, here, and here), but maybe they’re too specific for the mood you’re in. There are times when you could use a jumpstart, but want something broad that you can take and run with in your own way. Well, we’ve got you covered here, too!


Every so often, we’ll throw out an image or idea to get the ball rolling. Any part of it can pique your interest– texture, color, topic, associations, whatever! Let the idea take you wherever you want.


Now without further ado, I give you today’s inspiration. (Drumroll please)

The jellyfish is a most elusive creature. Feared for its sting, it can easily ruin a day at the beach, yet it is so beautiful and elegant in its movement. Its transparency and long flowing tentacles give it an unlikely grace. Shape-wise, though, it reminds me of a mushroom. Its variations in color and its ghost-like quality make it a great subject for such mediums as watercolors, colored pencils, and tissue paper. But feel free to try anything! Again, these are just some thoughts and images to get you started.
