Inspiration is just one of those words, like creativity. They are not in my vocabulary.
I don’t believe n them.
Inspiration means – the ‘breath of God’. I don’t believe in God.
Nothing is easy. There is the old adage, 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration. Really 100% just work. Inspiration mystifies a concrete process of thinking and making things, it also underestimates the capabilities of people to think that is without divine help.
However I do have ideas.
Where do ideas come from? Is a good question and well, not out of the sky that’s for sure.
I also have influences which is what people often mean when they ask about what inspires – Rabelais, Cervantes, Jonathan Swift, Goya, Hogarth, George Groz, Francis Bacon, Ken Russell and many others, but I’ll have to consult my Muses to come up with more.
