Does art inspire you? Clouds that look like faces? Trees that look like humans? Paper Planes? Discovering new galaxies? Artists have looked to the world around them for centuries to gain inspiration. This year’s Doodle 4 Google asks students to do the same and inviting students to share their doodles based on the theme 'What Inspires Me?' The winning doodle will be showcased on www.google.co.in page and the winner will win loads of prizes.Enter a Doodle

Examples from our Doodlers
What inspires me is... art! All art, from prehistoric to modern, from things in museums to things on my fridge. Art has given me new perspectives and appreciations for everything. We all live in the same world but see it so differently. It makes me excited wondering about what kind of art I'll make.
My orthodontist’s office was filled to the brim with plants, so every visit felt like I venturing deep into a jungle to take care of my teeth. My imagination would go wild with ideas as the doctor fastened wires in my mouth. Since then, I’ve found myself fascinated and inspired by bizzare, unlikely mashups in life.
In nature and science it doesn’t matter how small or big, wherever you look you’ll find complexity and something beautiful. In this Doodle I drew a tiny atom, a molecule, DNA, a cell, a plant and a forest, always getting bigger and bigger, if we had more letters I’d have drawn the earth, our galaxy and the universe too. All inspiring and reminding us of how small and also how big we are.
I’m inspired by all the charming, strange, and occasionally dangerous things that somehow coexist all together in our oceans. They remind me that things on this planet are wonderful and weird, and that there’s always new things to discover.
I’m inspired by the huge variation to be found in plants. I often lose track of time just staring at a leaf, wondering how the shapes, colors, and patterns came to be. Every time I visit a botanical garden, I see a design I’ve never thought of before in my life. Nature is the most inspiring artist of them all.
I get inspiration from all of the beautiful places around the world. Fill up the tank, hit the road, and discover the hidden treasures in your own backyard!
