AI: You Really Know How to Turn Me On

Sometimes I read a story and all I can think of is making drawings based on it. Sometimes I go to a museum and see a scientific concept illustrated in such a way that it makes me want to create one of my own. I love having interactions that inspire me. Be it a science museum, art gallery, documentary, book, or even a great conversation, I love that feeling of coming away from an experience with an itch to create.

What gets your creative juices flowing? Have you had an experience or interaction recently that got your creative brains all worked up? Is there something you can always count on to get you going?

The ART Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Mad Art Lab community. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET.

    I’m a musician, and somewhat strangely I always come away more inspired by visual art than by music. Walking through a museum lights my aural brain up; coming out of a good movie gets me thinking “how would you do that same thing with a string quartet?”* And don’t even get me started on looking up on a dark, starry night.

    *spoiler: you can’t, really. But it’s fun to think about.
