As much as I love using Photoshop and Illustrator for my designs, there’s nothing more cathartic for me than going back to basics: my sketchbook.
Whenever I’m not feeling inspired, I go back to pen and paper and start doodling/sketching things that inspire me. A lot of my doodles revolve around food (if you know me, you know that’s not a surprise), and succulents – I have a mild obsession with them. I’m not a plant person but if I ever were to have a plant of my own, it would be a succulent!
I draw, color them in with watercolor paint, outline them and then scan them in to further process them digitally. I love creating seamless patterns out of them – I could spend hours (wait, I honestly do) creating patterns and doodling!
