You know what’s quite nice? Autodesk Sketchbook. It’s a bit nicer than the Photoshop tablet app because it has BLENDING MODES. Jeez.

One of the mainstays in my collection of thoughts on design philosophy is that restrictions aid creativity. Limited colour palettes, size/shape constraints, pixel art and even time restraints help mold the outcome by organising the creator’s problem solving approach.  I’ve always admired the ‘every days’, ‘100 images in 100 days’ type thing that people are able to do, and often how much time they’re able to put into these projects.

I’m not so lucky in the time department so I’m revisiting my roots in ballpoint pen with these 20 min sketches, photographed with a phone and coloured quickly and simply in Sketchbook.
