INTUITIVE MARK MAKING CREATES NEW PATHWAYS IN THE BRAIN

This design was inspired by a hand-drawn ‘doodle’ from a sketchbook I use for mark-making. Doodling is a great way to allow your brain to enter into ‘default mode’, the state neuroscientists identify as the mode in which your subconscious works at solving disparate ideas and carrying out autobiographical planning. Essentially, you have your best, most creative ideas, when you are on autopilot.

Using my doodle as the base, I experimented with art brushes and textures in Adobe Illustrator to create this vector artwork. I love the raw, yet clean, mixed-up look that can be achieved this way.

“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.”Alan Alda
