What’s on your drawing board?

Do you find you fall into lows and highs when creating? One of the best ways I found to combat that is to always have something on the drawing board. Since I do for hire illustration paid work comes in waves some months so it is important to stay upbeat in between the waves. I found by having a personal project that is ongoing it helps to keep things busy in the studio. That is very easy with my comic book series as there are many tasks to handle. If you’re doing fine art for instance try keeping three paintings on the go all at one time. One may be in beginning stages, one half way through, and one almost in completion. That way if you get stuck on one or bored you can leave it alone for a while. You may even find you have a steadier workflow.

Happy painting,
