Something I’m trying to do lately is challenge myself to draw even when I’m not feeling inspired or interested. I’ve heard that the act of being creative even when you’re not feeling it can help the muse come around more often. This is something I’ve always struggled with, but the new print-a-doodles section of my shop is definitely a motivator. If I can draw 1-2 quick printable illustrations a week, that section will fill up fast AND perhaps I’ll discover a more complicated project in mix! At least, that’s my theory.

How do you stay on top of the creative wave?
