Creative Exploration

Sometimes Ideas Work

Sometimes the first one is the ONE. Many times it is. Yesterday I drew my inspiration from two sources: the poster project from a graphic design class and Corita Kent. Except for font changes and layout adjustments, my poster was good. I had an idea. Let it flow into the next. Happy.

Sometimes the source of inspiration shuts down the creative free spirit. My focus becomes how can I make this look like a source. A record should look like a record. A poster should look like a poster. It becomes a guessing game.

That’s where this little book comes in. Begin with am image, painting, or photograph. Fiil the first page with words from your recent grocery list. Keep Going. Go where the inspiration takes you. Observe connections and create the next page. End with some poetic words. Remember there is only make.

Yes, taken from Corita’s book. I’d say that’s great practice!

What’s good for you? Turkey or Beef?

Beans for protein IRON pack a punch!
