Coldplay, Simple Minds, Owl City, and a mountain of one-hit wonders by hundreds of other artists.
Encyclopaedias, works of Fanfiction, strategy guides and walkthroughs, the Harry Potter books, Michael Morpurgo's fictional stories,
Starbolt Stories is reasonably competent, otherwise Stephen King, Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, and J.K. Rowling have been a huge help.
Catan, Machi Koro, Ticket to Ride, the 50 or so console games in my chest of drawers, and the Pokemon series.

Wii U, 3DS, PS4
Tools of the Trade
Any gridded paper I can get my hands on, everything I can cram into a pencil case and backpack, and Adobe CS & CC
Physical activities, preferably Climbing or Gymnastics or Parkour, although my work extends to 3D Modelling and Animating, and I brainstorm, a lot.
