Whether you’re working in the creative industry, planning fun summer projects or want to refresh your home, seeking exciting inspiration is always important.
As creative duo – Buttercrumble – we know this first hand! We are illustrators and we are always on the look out for new ideas, methods and trends. But how do we continue to seek fresh inspiration? Here are our top tips for you!
1. Keep a journal or sketchbook
2. Watch, read and write
3. Follow blogs
4. Go for a walk
5. Visit flea markets, charity shops and antique shops
6. Be mindful
8. Take photos
9. Make mistakes
10. Smash the system
We are lucky that we get to spend a lot of time by the sea which is wonderful for inspiring walks and photography. Also, as a creative duo we collaborate on a daily basis!
However, the inevitable creative block occasionally appears. When this happens, we turn to our favourite artists. These include Mary Blair, Orla Kiely and Charlie Harper.
We also love mid century films – Breakfast at Tiffany’s is our favourite.
Who do you turn to when you’re running low on inspiration? Next time you reach that block we hope our easy tips can help you power through!
