If you want to come up with something creative, unique, weird or different... if you want to just pick something out of the endless everything that you can choose from, it all starts with like Gigi says, with some constraints. You have to make some choices based on your preferences and feelings. Let me walk you through it. Say you have no idea what you want to do. But you want to do something. Okay. Narrow it down. You want to do something that will catch people's attention. You want something that feels... crazy, but also fun. Whatever. You have to keep making these choices. So then you decide that you want to work with permanent markers because they're bold and fun. So you need to get some heavy weight paper. Some big paper. And you decide that you want it to be spontaneous so you don't even bother planning ahead and you just start drawing what you feel and you end up with some punk rock gothic babydoll lolita character or something in big, bold black lines. You color it in and it feels good. It feels right. And you're done. It all starts by picking the road you want to go down. You will always be choosing a path. There are usually more than one to choose from. Just pick the one that feels good and go down it. If you're really in the zone, you'll just be flowing seamlessly along branching paths making choices as you go, enjoying the whole process thoroughly. Then repeat. Just don't endlessly backtrack and try every path never reaching the end of any of them. Don't be that guy. You can start over at the beginning as many times as you want. And that's what you do. Same with anything. And then the fun part is regretting the paths you chose. But that's another story for another day.
