I’ve always been a habitual drawer, exploring drawing is all I can remember – it’s something I still do now, so I think it’s that obsession that has evolved with me that led me into design.
It’s just developed out of line drawing – pencil on paper – I was always really interested in digital art and played around in MS Paint. I wanted to start digitally replicating what I drew on paper and have the two influence each other but I think it was only after I started exploring CAD software that I found a link between pencil and digital outcomes. A tip would be to just keep exploring what interests you to work on pieces that you like.
