Sea Creatures

Happy Saturday!

Here's one of my favorite whales, the orca, that I drew a few months back.
I drew over it and scribbled madly with my Pilot pen. I actually wanted a tattoo of an orca a while back but couldn't figure out where I would put it on my body. Anyway, I really like drawings with "movement" so maybe I will keep at it. Ooh, maybe I can have a series of framed illustrations of ocean dwellers.

I wonder if I am the only one who has trouble getting my brain to sizzle with inspiration.. I read many articles where they talk about how creative brains tend to run too fast or too slow - never consistent. But, I mean, that's everyone, no? I think I just need to keep pushing myself to go back to the basics. Grab my sketchbook and just go sit somewhere and draw what I see. Pen, so that I can't erase any mistakes. I found a quote..

"I don't have inspiration. I only have ideas. Ideas and deadlines." -Stan Lee

How awesome is that quote?
Has the concept of finding inspiration become hollow and vague now? Sometimes I find so much "inspiration" around me that I don't know what to do. That makes no sense!

I think I ruined my favorite pen..
I'm thinking octopus next? Yes.
