How to Find Ideas for Drawing

Look under mushrooms.

Dig in the dirt with a stick and pull them up like potatoes.

Listen for inspiration chirping first thing in the morning along with the birds.

Plant an idea in the fall and let it bloom the spring.

Put out treats like sweets and peanuts and hide behind a bush until ideas flutter in.

Hold out your hand and pull one out of the darkness when it lights in the palm of you hand.

Tie a thought onto a line and drop it into a deep lake and see what you catch.

Examine the underneath side of flowers.

Wade into a stream and see what nibbles at your toes.

Lie in bed after you awake and look for new ideas at the edges of your dreams.

Twirl your pencil in the air and let ideas gather around it like cotton candy.
