Inspirations - The Little Monsters

Science fiction writer Harlan Ellison, when asked where his ideas came from, used to say, ‘Schenectady.’  Maybe he still does.  It’s as good an answer as any to a question on which creative people prefer not to dwell.

Many of my inspirations come from television and the movies.  As mentioned in my last post, I try not to imitate, but rather to put my own interpretation on things that I see.  A case in point is a necklace actress Charlize Theron wore in 'The Legend of Bagger Vance.'  You can see an image of it on IMDB:

See what I mean?

Ms. Theron's necklace was lovely.  I like mine better.
