|Frida Calavera Sketch by Wink Artisans|
It's funny how inspiration hits you when you least expected. The last weeks, I've been tormenting myself as creativity has been on a dry spell. I seat at my worktable and stare at the wall. I keep looking at my art books, I watch art and archeology movies, I go to museums, I read books... I doodle, doodle and doodle some more and yet nothing substantial emerges. What happened to all the ideas I had last month? Okay, it's time to revisit my sketches... but before I do that, I need to take a siesta.
Yesterday late afternoon I took a nap and when I woke up a burst of inspiration came my way. Quickly, I gathered paper, pencils, erasers, Sharpies, and my books... and let's not forget Google. Soon, I was working into the late hours of the night. Woo Hoo! Finally, I got some ideas on paper. Check out the Frida Calavera sketch above. Now the trick will be to transfer them to metal. Well, that's another story.
