See this video of Romawinkel

On the blog of the American Roxy Marj (which I have been following for some years now) I saw this video, it shows her work as an illustrator. I really like the fact that you can see how products are developed. Starting with drawings in a sketchbook, developing the drawing into an idea, and then making that idea into an original product. Wow, that's what I like about creativity!

Here is the link to the video:

Left-over paint mural

I really like this idea of using left-over paint to make an abstract mural:

I saw this picture in the Dutch Elle Decoration (issue Jan/Feb 2013), it says: treat the painting like a collage, using small and large squares and dare to use colours which do not seem to match. Fun idea!

Drawing and sketching for fun

One thing I very much like is looking into sketchbooks of designers. Of course this chance does not happen very often, but only the slightest sketch of an idea or just a silly fast drawing gives a glimpse of the creativity process of a person. And what I like the most, is that this process differs for each person.

For years I have been sketching my ideas in small notebooks, and I have now added a small sketchbook for drawings. Lately however, I have not been drawing a lot, that is why I am looking forward to February in which I start the project A Drawing A Day. I have done this for two years now, and I really like the need to make a drawing for each day, a month long.
Anyone who will join me, so we can see each other's drawings on the blog? Please let me know.
