The Peacock

Wheat paste below.

This is one of my favorite drawings of all time.  I can’t say there was a specific memory, time, incident, image, that inspired me for this one.

Sometimes I’ll just go online, look at other people’s art, sketches, blogs, whether it’s certain artists I really admire or something as broad as StumbleUpon or Pinterest.  I can tell I’ve got some kind of inspiration, the need to draw something, and I just need to look and appreciate someone else’s work to really trigger something and get me motivated to put something on paper.  Other people’s creativity feeds my own.  I see something beautiful and it makes me want to make something beautiful too.  It’s a weird and kind of difficult feeling to explain.

This one is especially special to me because thanks to The Rasterbator I was able to make this piece into my first wheat paste poster.  Search the island of Oahu, and maybe you’ll find it.  Hopefully the first of many to come.
