Illustration Ideas Come From Many Sources
My illustration ideas come from many sources. Sometimes I go to outer space to get them. It's not very cost effective but the results are good. Most often they come from simply paying attention to what is going on around me. I observe something, I hear something, or I can even smell something that may trigger an idea. The trick is to record it immediately. Use a paper napkin, a receipt...whatever you can get your hands on. If you're like me you always have a Moleskine journal with you to use.
This illustration was inspired from a photo I saw recently. I'm taking an online class with Celeste and she had posted a photo of herself on a trip where a bird had chomped her hat. I asked her if I could use her image for an illustration and she said yes. So here you go Celeste.....thank you for letting me use your image.
