I have mentioned that my ideas can be inspired by my dreams as that is a large outlet for me. But inspiration can come from a myriad of places. Your experiences and that of others, your imagination, books, movies, magazines, even your kids and pets. The internet is one big pool of ideas. Which leads me to the idea of originality. It is all too easy steal someone’s idea, heck that is the internet 🙂 The trick is to make your work your own. We all know that you can’t protect an idea, but you can protect how you perceive it.
