Here’s my Inktober 2018 Day 2 entry. I know I am several days behind but I am going to do this challenge on my own pace. I am not using the official prompts but I just enjoy doing my own stuff. A well-known local illustrator advised me to make full use of this drawing challenge. She said instead of just doodling aimlessly, set a goal. Say what do I want to achieve by the end of this month? Say if my goal is to fill up my online store with more products, I need to have more designs. What kind of design? Well, I have set to design patterns. So, make a goal to draw or paint one design a day, and do it the best way I can. If it’s good, use it in my shop. If not, that’s okay. It’s a learning process. By the end of the month, I hope to have at least 25 new artworks to upload to my shop. What she said makes perfect sense!
So here are the progress photos for today’s entry. A simple floral/spiral doodle.
I love the bold lines. They add contrast and dimension to the drawing.
Also, I decided to resurrect my Creative United shop after a friend commented she hopes to buy some of my stuff locally because they are cheaper than overseas POD companies. Initially, I hesitated because uploading designs to CU involve a lot of work (different products require different image sizes and dimensions). However, I give it a go for the benefits of my local fans. So here are some samples of the products with this drawing on them 🙂
