In this thread you post:

An artist who really inspires you.
(Include pictures, links, ect.)

Music that gets you going.
(Like music that makes you energized and creative.)

Books you've read that give perspective on things.
(Preferably Fiction.)

Foods that help you get into the drawing mood.
(Hey, it couldn't hurt.)

And pretty much everything else.

I also wouldn't mind knowing why these things inspire you.

An artist who really inspires you.
Gustav Klimt

Sex, power, conflict, beauty, shame, pride, depth and revolutionary. I hate doing patterns I will never understand people who do, but his work goes beyond just patterns and reach ideas, concepts, dialogues and a change on what is art at the time (I have other favorites, but the power he captured in his work is amazing).

Music that gets you going.
The Origin of Love, OST of Hedwig and The Angry Inch.


If you saw the movie you will understand why this is so powerful for everyone.

Books you've read that give perspective on things.
Le Petit Prince, from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Every time I read a part of it my eyes get a little wet.

Foods that help you get into the drawing mood.
Mexican Food, specially: Burritos, they are just a winners meal.

And pretty much everything else.

The Fight Club. I know, there are plenty of better movies; older and news, but this was the first movie that changed my perspective over things.

Comic Artist.
Mike Mignola.

I love how he shades, mix proportions and use shading to give depth to his work. Also the color patterns he uses and other details are just amazing, I always get amused with his work.

Movie Director.
Gaspar Noe.

A simple guy who does some of the most amazing movies, where the force the audience in narratives drives by sound or image, he tells stories in a way that is just amazing.

Mega ManX.

Simple, it was the first game I loved. When I first bought it (well my parents bought it for my for a Christmas), I couldn't stop talking about it after years (I start it when I had like 8 and even when i was in my last year of school, with 18 years old, I was still doodling megaman characters).

I just wanted to say that clockhand, you have no idea how happy it makes me that you put The Little Prince/Le petit prince as your inspiration :) I love that book!!!

(my favorite part is the part where the fox teaches him how to tame him)

I am inspired by menswear (http://gthegentleman.tumblr.com/), runway fashion (http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/S2011RTW-HERMES) (red carpet/tabloid material is awful), alternative fashion (http://urbangothik.tumblr.com/), body modification (http://modificationinspiration.tumblr.com/) (nsfw), and nature (http://e-a-r-t-h.tumblr.com/).
