Lately I have been spending a lot of time trying to seek out stuff that really inspires me artistically while also trying to pin down the works/looks that I'm already inspired by.

Through all the mediums I can think of to create art it is Photography that I keep coming back to. That doesn't mean it's my favorite thing to make myself, but I love the concept that something as simple as taking a snapshot of time will ALWAYS be completely different from person to person, moment to moment.
Now yes, you can stage a photo, maybe a still life, and take a ton of photos that are exactly the same. What I'm talking about are the people who carry their camera around with them and capture life as it happens, planned/staged or not.

Aesthetically I tend to go for simple, clean compositions and great use of color and light.

I'm finding that taking a moment to pin down what it is I find inspiring aesthetically helps me catalog it in my brain to use later. It also immediately starts to meld with/remind me of other things that also visually inspire me that I had forgotten about.
