So, with all that fatigue, I took a break from my Adobe Illustrator practice and I switched up my studio routine. I cleaned and tidied the studio, and purged lots of paper and textiles. I fed my sketchbook and played with some mark making. Yesterday I tackled my office with its mounds of paper: notes and lists on small pieces of paper. I responded to old emails, and completed necessary business tasks that I had been putting off. While I was on a roll, I also practiced Adobe Illustrator for the first time since May 3. It was good to be away from it and equally good to be back.
I kept it simple. I took the Quatrefoil pattern that I designed in August 2012, altered the scale and removed all the colour.
