The web is full of great places to find inspiration with sites showcasing the work of many illustrators. I also see look at other things, like the art of culture around the world that show other ways of solving problems.
I listen to music, watch a good movie or TV series, read a book, or try cooking something new. Creative block is not bad, it is one’s mind working in silence.
When I was a beginner, I used to think I wasn’t good enough. Later I found out that lots of people loved my work. The lesson I learned from this was to take it easy and always learn new things. Also, respect and communication are very important when working with clients!
CorelDRAW is easy to use and has new tools and features I enjoy learning about and experimenting with. Right now, I’m experimenting with how to use “non-destructive effects” and have discovered that they offer lots of creative possibilities. I always like to see how those new tools improve the images I create.
