Catching inspiration with a sketchbook.

posted on 20th of april, 2010

Always one for new style or approaches to microstock content, I have found that having a sketchbook with me at all times allows me to "catch" inspiration when it hits. I can play with ideas and test theories without spending too much time behind the computer. Let's be honest, it IS good to step back every once in a while. I also find that honing ones skill in other media only help to develop one's skills in another.

I always keep a notebook with me it's a great way to catch your ideas when they are flowing. You never know when they may come :)
