One process I use : often I review my old hand Sketched sketch books/ I date and Mark ones I Love, . I continue this process Until I am so inspired
Ill then Digitize it,'take a photo, namely do I just use scanner, I do use my camera or a phone or IPad.
Later Ill takes another look at these favorites, a sketch is different with a Light source behind it! Then again what is an Inspiration .... that is what Ill uses to "PAINT" "color it in my Favorite App "Sketch Book Pro"

My Heart wants to do Children Illustrations. Much of my Art, is not contrived.It just happens.
