When I’m feeling a little bit over everything and I’m struggling to focus on whatever illustration I’m supposed to be working on I like to “urban sketch” pop culture landmarks and stuff in my landscape sketchbook.
Obviously, it’s not pure urban sketching as it’s not done live but I try and go through the same process, so no pencil lines, lots of quick motion and colours.
It’s nice to produce something rough and organic even if the subject matter isn’t actually real but I always pick up on new details and I think it helps with my other illustrations.
I’ll post a few pages from sketch book over the next week.
