I know from personal experience, the best technique for getting out of a creative slump is to surround yourself with creative people and their art. I could make a list of things you could do like take a walk, journal etc… Blah, Blah, Blah… but to be perfectly honest with you, I don’t think anything works better than to stop, sit down, live in the moment and fully engage your brain in a fellow artist’s world. Share in their creativity.
So, today I want to share with you one of my favorite places to browse and find inspiration. It’s a blog called “Artists Inspire Artists”. It is a community where artists share their work with other artists, with the goal of keeping the creative juices flowing. This site will make you giddy… it did me. So many amazing artists, artworks and images on here. There is no way you will stay in your creative slump for long. This lights my fire every time. You can even submit your own artwork to inspire others!
What is “Artists Inspire Artists” – Get Inspired. Create. Share with the World.
“Inspiration is a powerful thing. Sometimes, all it takes is a picture, a message, or a song to change a life. And the Artists Inspire Artists blog is founded on the idea that the greatest forms of creativity are often sparked by sharing in the creativity of others. The goal of this blog is to build a vast community of artists with a passion for inspiring others through their work. We encourage you to take a look around, ignite your vision, and then submit your art for real-world critique. Here, the combined talents of many can be found in one place, and artists of every kind come together with the goal of finding and giving inspiration.”
