Get inspired by nature |TIP19

insect-pin-boardI am fascinated by the tool “Vertical Symmetry” of Sketchbook Pro.
You draw a half, and the software trace the second half automatically in real time. Wondering what to draw today, I had in mind the insect pin board where butterflies and other beetles are perfectly displayed.

So, I decided to practice that tool today, with a spider.


Drawing insects is a great opportunity to draw and learn forms made by Mother Earth. We often get inspired from other people’s creation. But we forget that she’s actually the best designer in earth.



Train your skills by sketching multiple type of insects. You will learn new shapes, ideas. You will have higher chance to have shapes that looks good than starting from scratch.
Remember that  “Nature never lies”.

If the sketching methods I’ve acquired aid me in my life and in my career, I believe that they can also help you to learn, and help you with your projects. Whether Design is a job or a hobby it doesn’t matter, so long as you do what is important to you.
