Create your art differently to get the spark back, to add more interest, or to just explore something new. Either way a different angle or material can add some interest to your work. Both for you and those enjoying your work.


If you normally write about people in first-person, try doing it in third-person, or imagine how an animal (like a squirrel) would behave. Wouldn’t it be fun if Sherlock Holmes behaved as a squirrel?

Painting & Drawing

Why should you have to start with a blank canvas or paper? Try using a different surface than you usually do. Sissel Olsen made this pretty hedgehog on a map over London.


Instead of taking pictures from your regular viewpoint, change the angle. Twist the camera, get down to the level of a child, get in close, you get the idea.
