If you're struggling for character inspiration, just look around your desk, studio or house for ideas: you'll be amazed at the opportunities that present themselves.

Whether it's a basil plant, the fridge in your kitchen or ice cubes in your drink, inanimate objects make a great base for new characters - try bringing one to life and see how your character unfolds.
