I'll often sit with my sketchbook and just doodle or draw single motifs. Other times I'll draw groupings of things like this mini jungle scene. I don't always have a plan for these sketches and sometimes they live forever in my sketchbook; but I found that with a little coaxing you can get big results.
Here, I took a simple drawing and used it in two very different ways. The first idea was to use it as a framed art print for a kid's room. And the next was to try it as a lush jungle print. They are so different and I really love how they both turned out.
My motto has always been to KEEP PLAYING. You never know the limit of a motif until you push it a little further. Have fun!
