Episode #15: Stories Of Inspiration

In this episode I’ve collected a few stories about the things in life that have inspired me over the years. For me, I find that inspiration can happen at any moment and be triggered by some of the simplest things in life. Things I wouldn’t have even guessed would be so inspiring.

When it comes to painting and sketching each day, even though I’ve been doing so for well over 3 years now, there are still some days when I feel a bit blocked. I’m waiting for that glorious moment of revelation and nothing seems to be rushing to mind. But, I always find that if I simply pick something to sketch and start thinking about the memories it evokes, I’m suddenly energized again and though I don’t know how things will turn out, I’m at least excited to try. So, I hope you’ll enjoy this little set of tales, and that they make you think of your own memories as we explore some of those stories of inspiration.
