Sketches and doodles should be a way of life for artists and designers. You never know what will come from it. I keep a sketch book with me all the time now thanks to a friend, Cynthia Erdahl, who is excellent at quick sketches. On a recent vacation to an all-inclusvie resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, I enjoyed the view from my cabana and worked at sketching every day. I say, “worked” because it is work for me, but you don’t improve unless you keep at it. What shall I do with these? They might end up as notecards or the basis for a design or painting.
