Lately, I’ve felt a bit like I’ve lost track of what inspires me and how I use that inspiration. I’ve been getting caught up on the day-to-day of running this blog and not creating nearly as much as I used to (more on that here). For example, many of you may not know that I used to be a product designer for companies like Nordstrom and Anthropologie! I still do a bit of freelance work for product design clients on the side, but I’ve noticed that I no longer doodle for the sake of doodling. Instead, I only draw if and when I need to — it that feels so weird to me. I’ve been brainstorming ways to create more and one thing that’s stood out to me during these sessions is a single question: how will I make myself accountable?
So today, I wanted to kick off a new series called Drawn + Downloadable where I share a few of my doodles with you guys and then use the artwork to create wallpapers you can download for your devices, phone, and computer. It’s hardly an original idea, but it will keep me going with this pet project of mine and hopefully even result in much, much more creativity on my end!
This month’s download is a simple one, very geometric yet painterly. It’s pulled from a page out of my sketchbook, but I’ve used photoshop to change up the colors and give you a few options!
