Here at Hungry Creators we try to spend everyday developing new and fun ideas for our projects. Whether it’s designing products, writing, or creating artworks. As tiring as it can be, we love what we do! Like many creative people, there are days when our imagination and inspiration decides to go on “sleep mode”. Our graphic artist, Jeddah, has compiled some of her tips on overcoming artist block.
Collect Art Books
Artbooks are bibles to the art world. Keep learning about artists from the past and present and build your knowledge. There is a lot to appreciate and absorb out there. I’ve gone over my art text books from college over a hundred times and I’ve found that little details inspire me .
Focus on the goal and STOP whining.
Just do it. Complaining won’t do yourself any good. Remember to be determined to make it to the finish line. It will take some motivation and discipline but your reward will be greater than expected.
Take a break.
Hangout with friends or take a walk. Don’t push yourself too hard. It can be exhausting to find inspiration. Let it come to you.
Keep a sketch book
A sketch book can be a powerful object . It houses our ideas and feelings. You can always look back and discover new things.
Lastly, Have fun!
Don’t be afraid of grand and silly ideas. Do something that is Risky. Let your imagination roam freely and sketch as much as possible. You’ll have time later to refine your ideas.
