Not to push the Monday Morning Muse off its notch, but I thought of a question when making my morning blog rounds today.
Ester over at Daily Drawings mentions traveling the city in search of new drawing material. Lately, I’ve been doing the same thing – traveling to new places I haven’t seen, or revisiting favorites, taking pictures, making notes, and just soaking it all in.
Last month I recommended getting out of your element as a good way to jumpstart creativity. So now I’m curious – where do you like to go to soak up new material? The city? The country? The backyard? Nowhere in particular?
I know writers who head for coffee shops to soak up conversations, musicians who travel to cities to extract the rhythm from the pulse of the day, and visual artists who visit the museums to see what’s come before.
Where do you go to find new inspirational material?
