|How is an idea born? For you, what is inspiration?
Honestly I have grown up playing video games and watching animation, so I have always been into more boy-ish things; I dunno why. So nostalgia for the 80's is a lot of what drives me as to what project I will do next. Also aside from using characters I am attatched to, I will often use characters or screen shots that are just really funny looking (i.e. my Mike Tyson from Punch Out portrait).
I cannot really tell. But in most cases for me, if anyone will just ask me how & what, everything just pop-up to my mind.. without even giving me a chance to think for a minute of time.
An idea is born from constant thought. I think about what I do randomly and consistently. Sometimes I literally close my eyes and wait for the show. There is always a show inside my brain waiting to be seen. The colors emerge and I remember them, for later, when they will seemingly "be born." And many ideas simply come from making things and having them fail, making things, having them succeed.
Gestation comes quickly or slowly. Sometimes the meal is fast - other times years to finally emerge. I am inspired at every turn - colours- ideas- feelings - merge, coalesce.
Inspiration is recognizing nature and interpreting that through art...

I get inspiration from things I see in everyday life like from a story I read to a picture in a magazine to how I am feeling at the moment.
They come from everything, all the time. Mostly it takes the form of words because images are more difficult to make notes about.
Of course a lot of it takes on darker themes but this is the stuff of entertainment, isn't it?
Mostly music, nature, discussions, movies, tv-shows and books. In other words, other creative works and the world itself.
An idea that is born randomly is sometimes the best of idea. But no idea is bad, some are just better than others. Its like life there is always someone better than you, and someone below you that's why we shouldn't forget to look up and down, not only up because if we only look up we will lose track of the where we are standing and we never should forget who we are, where we stand, who helped us, where we come from and where we are heading.
Life is inspiration for me. My family life growing up, things around me that I care about. I take walks in the mornings and I let my mind flow. A lot of ideas come to me then.
A novel or an everyday scene. I believe that there is a lot more than what we can see. I meditate to find out what it is and how it could be translated into form, using mainly geometry.
ideas are born from the 'UNIVERSAL MIND' one only needs to be open to receive.
My inspiration is nature, the organic forms and materials.
Nature and the sea.
