What are the things that inspire you? Can you name a few websites you use for inspiration?

I don’t have a few websites that I specially took interest in and keep coming back for inspiration. I’m kinda a hit and run girl. Went through it, loved it, then forgot about it. Inspiration can come from many sources: other people’s artwork, books, movies, music… I just let everything sinking slowly and naturally, then unexpectedly, an idea or image comes up in my head.

Thank you. It’s also one of my favorites. I listened to Kate Nash’s “Skeleton song” for a while and suddenly this vision pop up in my head, so I guess I was mostly inspired by this song. I guess the artwork is all about the loneliness, not the cold, dark loneliness, but the beautiful, deep and warm kind.
