Ideas & Inspiration

Sometimes, like now, for instance, some of us run out of ideas. It happens, despite copious applications of coffee and other inducements. So, when you're sitting around, looking at a blank screen or canvas or keyboard, what can you do?

Big Huge Labs has invented an idea generator that returns results from several different senses. Photos, colors, songs, videos, crafts, all things to inspire you. Alas, nothing that evokes the inspirational sense of smell, but for that a walk either outside or through the produce department should do the trick.

If you're in the mood for gazing at the results of inspiration, Symbol Interface is a neat blog. It's a collection of 2-D and 3-D artwork as well as commentary on the nature of creativity and art. There are some beautiful thoughts and images here, and if you're experiencing a creative block you'll be inspired, rather than intimidated.
