Where do you get your inspiration?

I often get asked where I get my inspiration for my crafts, knitting, sewing, quilting, etc... I get almost all my color inspiration from graffiti and lowbro art magazines such as Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose and others.

This particular color combo is my inspiration for the September month of my new {modern 12} bee on flickr. I figure I'll plan ahead for my month, it may change or it may not. I love the pink and red combo with black & white striping!


  1. you should check out Swindle if you have not seen it. i love Hi Fructose. my husband is an amazing grafitti artist. gotta love it.

  2. Oh yes! I have quite the collection of Swindle! Let's say there isn't an item in the house that doesn't have an Obey sticker on it, hubby and I are obsessed with Shepard Fairey! I adore graffiti, I think it's beautiful and do a bit of yarn/knit bombing myself.

  3. ah yes. i love Margaret Kilgallen, miss van, and Barry McGee.
