Creative Process: Another View

alex-grayAnother view on the creative process I like is the one by Alex Gray, whose writings on art I enjoy immensely.  Currently I am reading his book ‘The Mission of Art’.


  • Formulation: discovery of the artist’s subject or problem.
  • Saturation: a period of intense research on the subject/problem.
  • Incubation: letting the unconscious sift the information and develop a response.
  • Inspiration: a flash of your own unique solution to the problem.
  • Translation: bringing the internal solution to outer form.
  • Integration: sharing the creative answer with the world, and getting feedback
