One of the hardest phases for anyone to come out of, no matter what career they’re in or what hobby they like, is acquiring new ideas when their mind is empty and their creative drive is low. In fact, it’s almost a guarantee that no good outcome will emerge from a person who has no motivation for producing excellent work. This is where the need for inspiration comes in and shatters that uncreative wall. Since talented inspiration is hard to come by, we’ve compiled a list of people who have proven clearly innovative in their work, which helps spread some inspiration to you! Here are the creatives excelling at their craft in different industries.
Lenka Laskoradova, The fashion collage artist
Sparked from the simple desire to create art without being the original artist, Lenka constructs her collages with no end vision in mind. Her work is a compilation of magazine clippings and a precise scissor in hand. What is best about her work is that something as simple as old, glossy print paper is comprised into a perfect, new puzzle.
Libby Vanderploeg, The illustrationist
Libby has a love for maps and executing impeccable handwriting skills, but her gif filled illustrations make you want to take out a sketchbook and start practicing your doodling art, or at least work on your handwriting. She has a memorable mix of cheerfulness and feminist empowerment that makes you want to either buy all of her prints or copy her portrayed lighthearted attitude.
Anna Keville Joyce, The food stylist
Playing with her food turned into a career for Anna (we wish our parents had not told us to stop playing with our peas when we were kids). It’s truly amazing what one can create with items in their kitchen pantry and Anna takes it to the next level with her meticulous hand and loads of edible bits. After looking at her work, you’ll realize food is art too.
Nastia Cloutier, The fashion and beauty photographer
Close-ups of red lips, tongues, and colored eyes, bring a whole new perspective to sensual beauty. Nastia is only 18 years old and has a mature viewpoint of an seasoned photographer. Her usage of pastels and strong pops of lipstick red provides her with a trademark that is uniquely her own.
Amanda Shadowforth, The fashion blogger
Australian native and founder of the blog, Oracle Fox, this fashion enthusiast has a minimalist take on fashion and photography at which focusing on one form of art is not an option. Her blog category list stretches down the page showcasing her knowledge of the fashion industry and knack for a variety of artistic outlets. There’s tons to look at and be inspired by on this brilliant site.
Meryl Pataky, The neon artist
Meryl puts words into a whole new light and makes us want to install a neon sculpture above our beds. The neon pieces she creates are mostly scientific elements on the periodic table. It’s a type of artwork that you wouldn’t normally think of, which is the perfect motivation to think outside the box in your own work.
No matter where your new found form of inspiration comes from, apply the insight into your own work. Change the angle, color, material, or model. We all need a little inspirational pick-me-up from time to time. Hopefully these creatives were your boost today.
