When people ask me what inspires my designs, most of the time I say music. I listen to music all day long and find it very powerful. I love all kinds of music and my mood usually dictates what I listen to. Lyrics help me to imagine things.
However, sometimes I need to hop out of Bunnyville, breathe some fresh air, and use my eyes instead of my ears for inspiration. I go gathering.
The "friends entry" to my home.
Then I return to Bunnyville where I turn the music back on and gaze around at the fuzzy inspiration that resides there.
