Trying out a new version of my “Weird & Unnecessary” creative-rut-buster exercise. Instead of putting one stressful project aside to complete another, I open two illustrations in tabs at the same time in Illustrator … one “should” project (due soon) and one “Weird & Unnecessary” just-for-fun project. When I stall EVEN FOR 30 SECONDS on the important project, I quickly click over to the fun tab (THE FUN TAB!) and mess around until I feel like going back to the other one. I worked like 8 straight hours today like that and am almost finished with two projects.
Will post my “Weird & Unnecessary” illustration from today soon. Hint: think BBC. :D
Artist friends … try this method … IT WORKS!
Oh, and P.S. I’m on /Film (slashfilm) today as part of their “cool stuff” picks!
