I have found the soloution to boredome and the fair of the white paper after a masters course in architecture - draw anything not building related! I've never been good at sketching and it's always been something I've wanted to get better at. So as I'm sat working in a reception waiting for my dream job to come by (!!), I'm practicing sketching (not buildings). 2 mins max per sketch and no inhabitions - I kind of like how ugly they are.
PS: I'm currently drawing of other things I see online. Check out my pintrest board for fashion illustrations to see what I'm basing these on. One day I'll be as bad ass as these guys!
