Something that keeps striking me as somewhat strange is how the things that really inspire me aesthetically never really seem to bleed through into my own work. I have a list of things that feel like a punch to the gut with how right, how absolutely down my aesthetic alley they are and yet looking at what I actually create, I don’t see it. Maybe it’s a matter of me incorporating it more, or maybe inspiration works in mysterious ways.
Either way, here’s a couple of things that never fail to tickle my inspiration bone. See if you can spot any of this in my art, will you?
