I took most of the summer off from my Adobe Illustrator practice. One reason I feel so completely restored is that I made a point to radically change up my work and play this summer. We travelled, picnicked, spent time with friends. I fed and filled multiple sketchbooks, tried my hand at indigo dyeing, and dug through towers of art books. The dining room table and the garage were my satellite studios. The change of pace, space, and routine did wonders. This month I will ease back into learning, practicing, and designing.
