My inspiration comes from most normal everyday details that make up odds and events. I like to observe my surroundings a lot. I don’t necessarily look for it, but surreal and absurd moments happen in the regular and ordinary reality, and I like to catch them at the right time. It could be unplanned colour coordination in my field of vision that makes up connect-dots like picture. It is like, when watching movies, you catch the clues and figure it out before the characters do (or in some cases the characters never get to know in the end, but you do!)
