My Creative Process

DeathtoStock_Wired4

All artists have their own creative process – how to work, when to work, and what keeps them motivated.

My personal creative process is not very structured and unfortunately I only create new designs about once a month. Lately it’s been more frequently because I am working on a new portfolio.

I always carry a notebook with me so I can jot down ideas and work anywhere. I don’t need to be inspired to work; I just need to sit down and get started. The ideas will eventually come as long as I commit the time to do the work.

Usually I start with thumbnails and hand drawn sketches, but sometimes I go straight to the computer. Most of the time I think that the designs I work on over a few days look the best, but some of my popular designs I threw together in under an hour.

No matter how I decide to work, the best feeling is the sense of accomplishment you get from a finished design you’re happy with.

What does your creative process look like? Let me know in the comments.
