Local inspiration

Writers find inspiration everywhere.

I recently found the daily inspiration blog which is a really cool source of pretty images and stunning creative work. I thought it would be fun to list some South African sources of inspiration.

I’m currently loving the work of these local creatives. Their imagination fuels my own.

I’m also loving indie band Bicycle Thief, who wrote a song for my new novel. They have no videos yet, but check out their album available for free on Soundcloud.
