Drawing Patterns on a Sunday

Drawing Patterns on a Sunday

Michigan is experiencing the first cold spell since I've moved back. It's far more bitter than I remember, I'll admit, but it's the perfect weather for bundling up for a cold walk and then coming inside to warm up with hot tea and to catch up on some drawing. This weekend, I am "up north" visiting a friend near Traverse City, it's a great place to get some R&R and recharge. I spent a little time drawing up some patterns to add to my creative library, this is one way that I like to spend my down time when I am not as busy with work. By building a library of patterns, textures, photos, inspiration, etc, I have a full library of elements to use when the next project comes around that I've already created. It keeps me busy creating even if I don't have a specific project or design in mind. It also makes a lazy Sunday feel like a productive and worthwhile one!
