New week, new design element challenge: Colour

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

Weekly wrap up: Element of Design challenge Space

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!

Peace and love

Christmas decor theme: design challenge

As the Christmas season is fast approaching it is vital at least to me to stay focused and keep up my drawing practice. There are so many events such as tree lighting and can’t forget the Santa clause parade. It’s easy to get consumed by all the distractions. Which is all good but now is the time to stay balanced between fun and work. In times past practice has stopped and this time that is not going to happen. Now that my done my little rant. Here’s my drawing practice using the element balance.
