Creativity Struggles?

Just a fun playful sketch

Struggling with creativity?

Here are my usual remedies:
  • Find something to learn:
    • in an instructional book
    • by revisiting a piece of earlier work
    • by reading up on some art history
    • just keep practicing, working over fundamentals and not worrying about "producing"
  • Find inspiration:
    • visiting an art museum
    • taking the camera on a field trip
    • flipping through favorite art books
  • Reaching out to a fellow artist
    • email an artist you know
    • email an artist you don't know
    • attend a local art function
So what are your remedies?

if i get stuck i read an art book or fip through an art magazine. wish there were galleries closer to me because if there was, i would go look around and hope something would give me inspiration

listening to music helps me a lot too, if nothing helps i play a game on the xbox and the break sometimes helps
