Dialogues Podcast: Inspiration is All Around You

Question: What are some recommendations for sources of inspiration?

Some experts believe the only way for artists to stay inspired is interacting with other artists. Some say artists must look to other industries for innovative ideas. Wherever individual artists find their motivation, it’s crucial to creativity: Staying inspired is the only way a commercial artist can thrive.

In this encouraging Dialogues Podcast, consultants and artists discuss the periodicals, museums, blogs and other easily accessible sources they find most inspirational, the best places for artists to share their work to inspire others and one of the great truths of art (and all pursuits): If everyone’s thinking alike, nobody’s really thinking at all.

Listen and learn:

  • Why inspiration starts with understanding your focus
  • The most effective ways to keep up with industry trends
  • How diversity can open new creative doorways – but interacting with other artists may still be the best source of inspiration
