The Happy piglet

The piglet was happy. The sun was shining, he got a brand new kite, and the wind was just right…

a painting a day….

I’m taking the day off today. Well not really, but by that I mean I’m just playing rather than creating something for a specific purpose. I’ve found that going through a couple of weeks of intense work, I tend to burn out, and need to recharge to get my creativity flowing again. And what i found is, that whenever the ideas stops flowing, I need to step back, and just pick up my pencils and try new ways of creating art – It doesn’t matter if I end up just splashing paint around all day, and the the only thing I have to show, at the end of the day is a bunch of splotches. The important part is that I crated something, and usually I discover new techniques that i later end up using in my daily work.

ink sketch of the day

After I started playing with my pens again, I developed this nice morning ritual. I make a cup of coffee, I sit down at my desk, open Stitcher, and start to sketch away while listening to my favorite podcast, which at the moment is (in no particular order) :

And here’s what I drew this morning, another flower scene
