Waiting, waiting...

It's been a week where I've not been able to proceed as I am waiting for other people to do things, thus Fashion:Victim is waiting for a piece of jet to be carved and Future Legend is waiting for some fresh acrylic enamels to be delivered. Instead of working on those, I've spent the last few days dusting off half-completed projects and finishing them, largely to restock my Etsy shop.



Some of the completed pieces:

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me.

I came across this wonderful quote by Ira Glass today:

 

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap.

Influences / Inspirations to Do Creative Work

We all know that working creatively is not like a regular a 9-5 job with an on/off switch. Therefore, I am interested to hear about what you draw from for inspiration. What outside influences (if any) do you allow yourself, is your workspace set up in a specific way that has proven to be helpful for flow of thought/work. Also: What is a hindrance to your creativity ?
