Are you one of those artists that require inspiration to come in and give you ideas or are you able to keep things moving? Being an illustrator the luxury isn’t there of waiting for the ideas to come. Clients want their project completed in a timely manner. One way to keep sharp is inbetween client projects always have your own projects on the go. This will keep you sharp and give you ideas all the time. I write articles everyday and have to come up with illustration ideas all the time. I keep ideas on my phone in the notes section and in my sketchbooks. Any good title or subject you come across, write it down, it may come in handy later.
Most of us spend a day like this.
