I love drawing.
THE most important and enjoyable part
of creating a new piece of work, for me, is
the idea behind it. I usually spend quite
a lot of time mulling over ideas before I
start drawing. Whether I'm working out ideas
for a painting or an illustration,
I will always start with thumbnail sketches.
I picked up a useful tip for brain storming
ideas which I find really effective: take a
sheet of A3 paper, give yourself a time limit,
maybe 45 minutes. Fill the paper with as many
ideas as you can, reject nothing however daft!
If you can go to a cafe (somewhere away from home)
all the better! By the end you will have
pushed yourself and come up with a few gems.
Select your top 3 ideas and take it from there......
