We thrive on experiences informed by imagination, and this method of creation is generally only derived from putting ourselves through some form of challenge.
Thus we have established a longer running annual challenge called the #inktober challenge. Someone establishes a list of suggested words and the rest of us take inspiration from them in order to push our imaginations upward and forward.
It’s amazing to me to see how many different ways we can visualize the same words. My own interpretations take a turn toward political cartooning as I spent the better part of a decade focusing my artistic energies on. The word for the artwork above was ‘divided.’ I took the current climate on energy and did what I knew best - I offered my sense of the situation visually in cartoon form for others to see what I might see in the mix.
