I came across a blog that had a picture called an "influence map." When I read the blurb about it I noticed that it was a poster made for artists to add images of their artistic influences too, to remind us of why we do what we do. Well I was just tickled pink about it, and during the weekend I made one for myself. This is the site where you can get the PDF file to do your own influence map!
I highly suggest it! And whether you are a painter, writer, musician, or even just creative, DO IT! It's just refreshing to relive all your past and present influences and inspiration! :-)
