Looking for inspiration in your writing or blogging, here are seven blogs with images that might spark your imagination.

BibliOdyssey: Books~~Illustrations~~Science~~History~~Visual Materia Obscura~~Eclectic Bookart. Artwork taken from classic books. Book illustrations from the past have been an inspiration to me. See what you think.

ConceptShips: A great collection of spaceship concept art. Trying to picture what the capital ship looks like in your space navy, you might find it here.

Bent Objects: A photoblog featuring bent object sculptures and photo scenes of inanimate objects brought to life with witty captions. Sometimes, another person's view of the world through an odd lens can get your creative juices flowing. This is a great place for such inspiration.

If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger There'd Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats: An ongoing series of personal and cultural observations, featuring wonderful historic images and posters. Cultural references can open up a whole slew of ideas. From the Beatles to whine-o allies, there might be something here for you.

The following blogs could help those who are interested in writing horror or fantasy. Although, you might find other inspiration in them.

Morbid Anatamony: Not for the faint of heart, Morbid Anatomy explores the interstices of art and medicine, death and culture, with excellent photography and commentary. Exploded skeletons, taxidermy, cool images for your more gruesome imagination.

Monster Brains: A collection of illustrated fantastical creatures from the strange and bizarre to the whimsical. Plenty of fuel here for writers of fantasy and horror.

Don Kenn Gallery: Monster scenes illustrated on Post-It notes.Though most of these look like they would belong in a children's book, they could still inspire a tale of horror.
