This week has gone by so quickly. The warmer weather had me outside more and getting inspiration from mother nature’s changing colours. My love of colour has grown! I love change and this week’s challenge I used marker’s instead of pencil or paint which are my usual tools of choice.
Have to admit this is one of my favourites when it comes to expression. It’s totally in my comfort zone to use many colours. Am excited to explore the design element:colour.
That’s one of the reasons why I am doing these design challenges to get out of my comfort zone. To grow as a graphic designer and artist. As each week passes I learn two things how much easier it is to get inspired and how much my drawing muscle memory I have (I liked to think is getting stronger). Day 1 Design element Colour
Every week I make drawing out a design concept multiple times a top priority. This helps me get out if a creative rut.
Using colour and experimenting with the design element space and focusing on that one gets my brain into creative mode quicker.
Hands on or being outside with fresh air are all helpful in the design/ creative process regardless of industry.
To finally get Inspiration especially with a looming is a deadline is a fine balance.
All in all getting back to basics I found the most efficient way to inspiration.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend. Until next week creative warriors!

Doing a weeks worth of drawing has really opened my eyes to the different types of texture. Especially how simple it is to create. I’ll admit it was hard to stop.
How do you expression texture? How does this improve your design projects?
Whenever I have a new project be it a business card or logo going through the process by hand helps me with creating a focused design using the elements of design.
This weeks challenge I am sharing with you my video on the design element texture. Check it out!

This end of month challenge (This is more of an illustration brain teaser.) we will be taking one idea and making it abstract. This weeks theme is glasses.
The goal is to illustrate the transformation of the glasses into as many abstract images or new images as possible. Starting off with one drawing a day.
A few shapes am experimenting with.
