Keri Smith/ Writer & Illustrator
I just love her blog called "The Wish Jar" (http://www.kerismith.com/blog/). She oozes with creativity and seems to wake up every day with an inspirational thought. Here are some of her ideas: "1. Go for a walk. Draw or list things you find on the the sidewalk. 2. Write a letter to yourself in the future. 3. Buy something inexpensive as a symbol for your need to create, (new pen, a tea cup, journal). Use it everyday. 4. Draw your dinner. 5. Find a piece of poetry you respond to. Rewrite it and glue it into your journal. 6. Glue an envelope into your journal. For one week collect items you find on the street. 7. Expose yourself to a new artist, (go to a gallery, or in a book.) Write about what moves you about their work. 8. Find a photo of a person you do not know. Write a brief bio about them. 9. Spend a day drawing only red things..." And the list goes on, and on, and on, and on... literally.
