Inspiration comes from dozens of places. That's what artist Shane Guffogg's Hollywood art studio would lead you to believe.

While it was still shopping season you probably stopped for a few minutes to peer into a store window’s catchy display. But did you take a few extra minutes to really sort through the layers of visual information? You might have caught a view into the depths of the floor space behind those mannequins. Perhaps there was signage posted there, or decoration painted directly on the glass. And you might even have registered the reflected
