Inspiration Part 2

I cannot remember where I read this: ” inspiration is for amateurs, I just get to work.” I agreed with this at first as I was teetering on the edge of the Black Pit – and I had not been there for a while. But now that I have drawn back after being doused with a pail of metaphorical cold water by a friend, I wonder if professional artists dispense with inspiration. I cannot imagine the good ones do – or at least I hope they don’t. Maybe that is why there is so much forgettable art, including writing, around these days.
