HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I am having a creative blockage and decided to create an influence map.
As artists we are influenced by many things. The reason why we do what we do is the combined application of all the things that influence us. If you ever run into a major creative block and cannot create any new work, changes are you are forgetting what inspired you and need a refresher.
Someone created an Influence Map online, what you should do is fill in the squares with everything that influences you and inspires you to fuel the fire of your creative side, things that just make you want to create.
Take time to refer to it once and a while in case you ever forget what inspires you to do what you do.
