In order to keep myself interested in the icons I’ve been making I stopped randomly drawing a slip of paper from a bowl every morning. Instead I just sit on the floor of my room and try to figure out what I’m in the mood to depict in a line drawing.
I make a few sketches about things and try to see how I can make them interesting. Sometimes I can’t think of something I’m fully committed to so I’ll take a break and leave it for a while. While I’m getting ready for the day or driving I come up with something.
Then I try sketching again. Once I’m happy with the sketch I’ll jump on the computer. After it’s done, I’ll upload it and then do it all over again the next day.
So I thought I’d post some sketches that don’t get to be made digital. But that’s not to say I won’t end up making them into icons later.
