One of the tedious processes in doing stock art is to create new work based on old. This does one of two things. Allows you to produce quick artwork for sale without much need to creative thinking, but also makes it easy to populate your portfolio for sales. This is one series I have been doing, based on using icons I have already designed, but making them as repeat patterns.

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.
