Nothing comes out. Nothing comes in.

I work 24/7 with design. Whether its corporate presentations, posters for artists or logos for restaurants. Or designs for my clothing brand Swedish Horns. Doesn’t matter what the subject is, I do it all the time. And sometimes you’re just blank. Nothing comes out. Nothing comes in. You’re just stuck in a big shitty hole of nothing.

 

And this is what I do to break free from it. Design things that doesn’t really have any purpose other than being pretty. And I do it just for me.

 

I start with doing a base in Illustrator. Place it in photoshop and add some textures (this Daphnis Nerii is filled with birds and glitter).

After adding a bunch of effects, colors and styles, I’ve got my mind going and its easier to design things that I have to do for others.
