How to be Creative Daily (Chou-Tac x Renata)

Ola from Madrid, in Spain!

Sometimes, we lack inspiration.
We wonder what to draw and we face the blank page. 

Junior artists to seniors artists, we all search for creative ideas.
That’s our topic of the day in the artist interview above!

I made this video with my friend RENATA LAHALLE.
She’s an artist and she loves drawing daily with a ballpoint pen.

I am a designer, she’s an artist and we have the ballpoint pen as our best drawing tool in common. 🙂

She has a blog in French called “Les Images de Renata”.

We know each other for quite a while
and I really enjoy how she does push her art community to draw daily no matter their level.

Even though being a designer has their own characteristics
and professional concerns to answer,
there is plenty of good habits to take from artists.

We both think that what matter is the motivation you generate
through the pleasure you have at drawing
(instead of the frustration some may feel at constantly comparing themselves to advanced artist.)

Don’t worry, there are ways to be creative.
It is not only magic and rare innate talent.

I invite you to enjoy the tips she gives us
to be more creative daily and draw with passion!

Her message is full of simplicity,
and can really help you draw much more often happily.

I hope it will also inspire you to create your own design sketchbook. 🙂
Have a wonderful day! 🙂
