I love creating random designs. Many of you have been surprised to learn that each design is an original, not something copied from a book. So I thought I’d share my process with you.
I start with a blank sketch pad and a black marker (Pigma Graphic 2). No pencil sketch, no outline, no thoughts.
I just start somewhere. In a corner, the middle, along the bottom. And make a shape. The rest of the design builds organically from that first mark.
A Sharpie ultra fine point is used for the more detailed designs. I pause, look at the overall design, and ask what is needed next. My hand seems to know and that’s where I go.
And the process, for me, is pure joy!
