Inspiration boards give a glimpse into the mind of the highly creative and provide inspiration to all who are lucky enough to view them.
Creative people tend to have inspiring mood boards that sometimes provide insight to the backstory to one of their creations. Other times they can be puzzling as to how the images depicted add up to the final product. (That makes them even more intriguing.) Either way I find them fascinating, and I never tire of looking at them.
Below are some of my favorite boards.
