Brainstorm Cartoons - how I think up some new ideas for pictures

Brainstorm cartoons.

On this page I want to share with you one of the ways I think up new ideas for cartoons.

Along with many other creative people, sometimes I find that ideas come to me effortlessly and the sense of being in the flow takes care of the need to actively rack one's brains to come up with new ideas. At other times things seem a little slower, and it is at this time that I like to employ various different techniques to help idea generation.

Brainstorming is an old fall-back, so I thought I'd show you one of my rough mind-maps that have helped to spark the ideas behind some of the dog cartoons featured on this site.
