there is much to be gained by paying attention, bookmarking, filing and sketching out the ideas of others. if something strikes you as clever, beautiful, or disturbing, save it. somehow. when stumped for how to align your type or what colour scheme would work, look and see what others have done and steal that shit. seriously. there's a vast difference between copying and pulling inspiration from another artists work. you reacted to it strongly for a reason, use that reasoning in your own art. it's my unsolicited advice go-to. research, record, and then emulate to your hearts content.
