Last week I was creatively constipated. Sorry to be crass but that’s exactly how it can feel, no? When this happens I embark on a now-steady routine to get things moving again, and usually in this order: suddenly feel grouchy upon blockage setting in, sulk, nap, evaluate my future as a working creative, panic, consult my heroes, reconnect to the collective flow, ready to go.

Seeing as this column coincided with said blockage, I thought I’d share some of my tried and true go-to sources of inspiration. Mostly “classics” they are so I won’t bore you with any arty farty analysis. Just enjoy.

“Stick Artist” Patrick Dougherty. Attended his exhibit at the Desert Museum where you could crawl inside his work and vow never to leave.
