An insight into my sketchbook pages...
My sketchbook is as much a part of me as my left hand; I’m never without it. I look at the blank pages and see all the possibilities of texture, colour, print, and even moisture.
One of my favourite techniques to really get the creative ideas flowing is to start each new design on a textured page. Staining a page with coffee granules or tea gives you a brilliant base of colour and texture to work from and makes starting that new project a little less daunting.
A sketchbook doesn’t have to be a work of art, it’s a creative outlet to brainstorm everything from small designs to big ideas. I love nothing more than cosying up in front of the TV and seeing where the inspiration takes me. Sometimes that’s creating new concepts, other times it’s developing older ideas or simply jotting down flashes of designs that cross my mind.
A sketchbook is often private and personal but I want to share some snippets of mine with you to give you an insight into my creative workings, and how the concept art of your project might begin.
My sketchbook designs and development work can be used as part of my bespoke design service. We can explore the techniques I’ve used as a base to create something completely unique for you.
