Re: Attribution of Inspiration for Visual Artworks
If you, or when you go to art school (college) when doing a crit the artist gives a little speech about where the ideas came from-- for instance, inspired by "XYZ." In books, if you ever were to publish a coffee table book of your work, you would want this information in it. I think it is very important to keep track of "where" the ideas come from. Keeping a journal while doing your art is a good way to capture realizations like where the idea came from.
