The topic of my posting today is inspiration. It's better than a coffee in the morning to get you going! Seriously. Since, most of our followers at the moment are fellow artists, i don't have to explain the importance of inspiration to the creative process. For those of you that may not suffer from chronic art fatigue, inspiration is more than just finding something that gives you and idea to get started, its what keeps you going.
You all may have noticed, the right hand side of your page has a column of images and if you click on them you can see the link where we got the picture from. Well, these are things we find online that we like for some reason and wish to share with all our birdie friends. This week one of my lovely friends sent me a link to a super cool blog that i want to share. If i put it in the side bar id be posting like 200 images there so i'll just post the link to it here. Defiantly worth a look through at all her hard work. This girl had a total Julie & Julia moment and started a blog after she got laid off a not so fabulous job. Her mission as she chose to accept it: make 365 new garments out of flea market rejects in 365 days for $365.
I'm totally impressed with what she came up with. Not everything is perfect but you have to give the girl mega credit for creating a whole new outfit every single day. I've seen a whole bunch i want to make myself. You KNOW there's a Good Will run in my future. lol.
This blog reminded me that I'm behind on the new season of Project Runway already. I gave up on last season cause it was less than stellar but maybe i'll get back to that one when this ones over. I just watched the first episode and its looking promising so far.
One of my other big inspirations this week was a live feed interview of Chris Sanders through www.sketchoholic.com. It was so cool to hear about creating How to Train Your Dragon and Lilo and Stitch strait from his own mouth! Defiant motivation right there!
If you were wondering what i do while i work so diligently on all my birdie stuff, its pretty simple. I watch one of the like 800 shows i'm in love with or pop in a movie. Its killing me that all my summer shows are almost over. Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Rizzoli & Isles, Covert Affairs, and Psych..... im majorly addicted, like i have a problem. 'Hi my name is Jennifer Jane and i have an addiction....to television.' but all those shows seasons ending just means we are that much closer to my most favorite CASTLE!!!! Rachel Zoe is back too (bananas!) and taylor is gone. Already, best season ever.
Well thanks for letting me rant about a few of my favorite things. We would love to hear where you get your inspirations from!
