The reason why you do what you do is the combined application of all the things that influence you. If you run into a major block and cannot create new work, chances are you are forgetting what inspires you and need a refresher. Fill in these squares with everything that influences and inspires you to fuel the art you love to create. Refer to it as a kind of “map” in the future in case you get lost. "You can literally put anything in these squares -- photos of locations or people, other artist’s work, artists themselves, video games, TV shows, music, movies, and books. You name it, you can put it in there. Fill the grid placing more prominent influences as larger images.” ~meme by fox-orian - fox-orian.deviantart.com
