I really like Jan Urschel's art. There is so much detail in it. And when I look closer, I start wondering. Like... what's with the fire pit? What purpose does it serve? What do you think?

Do you like reading post-apocalyptic fiction? Or do you write about it? What inspires you?
I love reading and writing this genre. I think about how adventurous but also dangerous this life would be. But I would never, ever really want to be in a life like this, or long for it.
I love imagining myself (or my protagonist- I write in first person) in this world and time but that is as real as it should ever get. Weird? How do YOU feel about it? What goes through your head when you see this artwork by LELYK777 ?

It's time for some writing. How are you, guys? I found this awesome artwork by Joel Pigou on Pinterst today. This spaceship looks like a face. It looks like the living trees with faces in Lord of the Rings. Well kind of. And it freaks me out. Is it friendly or hostile? What purpose does it serve? What's the story?
Let's hear it.

After 3 weeks of wonderful holidays, I have returned to work and thought it's time for some Insta posts. Well, as a starter, I have got a little challenge for you. See what you make of this art by Doug Chiang. This is a floating city I would assume. But could it also be something else? A spaceship maybe? But why the unusual shape? Any ideas?

Happy New Year to all of you!
This is a good opportunity to thank you all for following my feed. I really appreciate all your likes, comments and feedbacks. It means a lot and keeps me going. Without you, all this wouldn't be fun.
There are so many talented and amazing artists, writers and minds amongst all of you and I wish I could reply to every one of you, comment on your feeds and answer your messages. But the number of followers simply overwhelm me and there is just no way I can. I'm sorry about this. I will continue trying my best to 'see' you and answer your messages but please don't be mad if I can't chat at the time. That doesn't mean I don't appreciate your time and interest. It just means life and work outside of Instagram gets in the way.
I do read all messages and comments (even if sometimes with delay) 😊
I hope the year 2018 will be a good one for you.
Love, Maya

French artist Stephan Martiniere is one of my favourite concept artists.His art draws me in. I love the colors he uses and also the idea behind his art. Like this one: a future setting, where technology and nature exist in harmony.

Sorry I have been so quiet over the last two weeks, guys. Life just kept me busy. It's this time of year.
But before you think I have disappeared, I thought I'll send a little challenge for this week.
I found this incredible artwork by wildcory1. It makes me think: Are these spaceships? Space stations? Why are they upside down?
Maybe you have some ideas 😉

Ok, my friends. I found another one for you to think about over the weekend. Maybe I should start a weekly 'what's-that?' post 🤔 😂
Anyway, I was looking at this cool artwork and wondered...yes, you likely guessed...what's that?
I see blue pipes. Filled with water? Then there are multiple water reservoirs? Maybe the blue color isn't water at all. Just blue glass or blue light?
Maybe it's not quite that simple. Maybe these are stations for human incubators or lifepods and the pipes contain the feeding liquid.
What do you think? What do you see?
Have a great weekend 😘

I find this artwork extremely interesting. I keep looking at it, wondering what this could be. At first, I thought these might be waterways, but then... why would you need two parallel water systems in the same direction? Or maybe streets?
Have a look at it! What do you see?? Any ideas, guys?
Let me just mention here that I love your ideas and inspiration :)

Weekend is coming and I found something that might keep you occupied 😉 I always thought that characters are one of the main pillars of a story. Without characters, there is no story. Quite often, a character can have his own mind about how a story should continue, even though the writer had a different idea initially? Have you ever written a scene and your character seemed to push into a different direction than you planned? How about this character in the pic? Is he good, is he bad? What is he struggling with? What does he love, what does he fear? And what is his mission?
Have a great weekend! 😘

I love this artwork by OmeN2501. It's a great inspiration for a book I planned to write. I had a rough story outline and I had also written the first two chapters. Then my computer crashed and the files were lost 😞
But seeing this, I should definitely restart the book. For now, it's more of an idea than an actual project. I'm still busy with my CROSSMIND Series, but I would love to write a Cyperpunk book in the future and this art inspired new ideas :-)
How about you? Any new inspiration from this?
