Lounging in design

Sometimes shapes appear out of random thought, and from that a design ensues that eventually concludes as a form. This is one of those examples. A sketched design for the process of designing a lizard icon. The sketch was very basic, and that is the great thing about Illustrator. From a basic start you can make a clean and simple end result. As seen below.

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
