Inspiration is like sugar, a little bit will give you a kick but if you ingest too much you’ll feel sick and unmotivated. There is a threshold I’ve realized I should not exceed when looking for inspiration. The times I do, I have experienced a creative block which somehow took me back to the mimicking phase of imitating somebody else. Just like with sugar there is a sweet spot that will kickstart your brain into creating something unique maybe based on something you have seen but if you cross the line you may end up feeling unable to be creative.Claudio Guglieri.
