No time for sketching? How designers draw anywhere! (TOKYO, JAPAN)

Hello ! It’s Chouchou !

Do you feel having no time for sketching ?

Let me help you on that.

Today, let me show you the behind the scene of a daily designer routine.
You will see that it is actually plenty of fun when you stop looking for perfection !

One of the main challenge we meet as a beginner is a lack of time.
So we never sketch (or not as much as we should),
and end keeping looking others to progress on Instagram…
and regret remaining into inaction.

Most beginners are obsessed by perfection and also the perfect time to start.
But that perfect never come... Oops !! : /

This is why Perfection is a MYTH I keep fighting against to help you grow.
Perfection drives to procrastination and is the biggest enemy of success.


“There is No perfect drawing.

No perfect time condition.

No perfect people.

But a Beautiful passion.”

Feel free to read that sentence twice.

Professional designers also get busy.
However still find time to draw in their leisure time as well. Why ?
Because sketching as a designer is a 24/24H activity.

Most people write a note when they got an idea.
You, as a designer will sketch it. It is as simple as that. : )

“Sketching becomes your lifestyle !”
No matter who you are, good at sketching or not,
or how busy you are, you gotta love drawing like you breathe.

In the REALITY of a designer, most of his sketches are UGLY DOODLES.
The sketches that get you inspired and feed your memory of forms daily at work,
at home, during shopping, or a terrace of a cafe and so on ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.

And if you got that fast sketching skill as an aspiring designer, get ready to stand out from the crowd.


PS: A design studio rather have a candidate who can sketch fast, being creative than having the greatest illustrator. Can you feel the difference ? 🙂

I will show you in the upcoming course Sketch Like The Pros how to get professional sketching level. But one step at a time. 🙂

If by today you draw ugly, that’s the perfect start.
You should feel proud of getting started, as most won’t.

Don’t procrastinate anymore. Make time your best ally.

The best time to start was yesterday.
And start climbing the ladder step-by-step.

Soon, you’ll be ready to take the rocket for success if you decide
to draw with the right method and strategy.
