I recently picked up a pen and started doodling while I was working on branding concepts for a new theater production premiering next year. While I was thinking, I started making dots all over the page. Next thing I knew, I was illustrating using a technique that I loved back in college: stippling. I’m really excited to rediscover this illustration style and it feels good to be drawing again. I had a dry spell creatively and this has helped me break through and start creating again. After so many years with a mouse in my hand, it feels good to get back to pen and ink on paper. Here are a couple illustrations I’ve finished this week.
