Where do ideas come from?

"Amusement and an Idea"

I have never gotten along well with words... I tend to mix prefixes up, jumble endings, lose words altogether, etc. etc. In a verbal world this is trouble. In a visual world this creates a lot of fun. It might be similar to an intuitive pulling together of colors for art pieces ~ what feels right ends up being a surprise element of contrast that is often the zap that makes a piece work. It is up to me to catch and try to translate misused words into interesting and meaningful imagery.
