I was walking home from class the other day, and decided to take a shortcut through a church courtyard. I was worried about picking an image to use for my mailers, and couldn't decide what I wanted to make. My mind was racing trying to think of something, when I passed a column and saw a giant green lizard looking at me. I froze and stared at him, and he immediately jumped onto my sketchbook. That's when I realized that he was just what I was looking for. He looked back up at me, and jumped away into a bush, just as quickly as he appeared.
A calling? Maybe. Inspiring? Yes. Sometimes it comes in the strangest places :)
