That is the question isn’t it. What makes us creative. In my case, more likely or not it involves a few beers. Though not always. I do find though that if I set down and try to design I more than often can’t. Whereas if I am just sitting watching something or if I am talking to someone ideas for new designs just seem to “pop” into my head. Where do they come from, I can not say. only that they chose their own time and place to inspire.
