Episode #15: Stories Of Inspiration
Sketching Stuff

00:00 / 00:22:15

In this episode I’ve collected a few stories about the things in life that have inspired me over the years. For me, I find that inspiration can happen at any moment and be triggered by some of the simplest things in life. Things I wouldn’t have even guessed would be so inspiring.

When it comes to painting and sketching each day, even though I’ve been doing so for well over 3 years now, there are still some days when I feel a bit blocked. I’m waiting for that glorious moment of revelation and nothing seems to be rushing to mind. But, I always find that if I simply pick something to sketch and start thinking about the memories it evokes, I’m suddenly energized again and though I don’t know how things will turn out, I’m at least excited to try. So, I hope you’ll enjoy this little set of tales, and that they make you think of your own memories as we explore some of those stories of inspiration.

    Thanks for another wonderful podcast, Charlie! I especially enjoyed hearing about your plaid shirt and early days with Philippe. The romantic in me, I guess.
