Drawing ideas for when you're stuck for inspiration

Drawing ideas are a funny thing. You usually have loads of them when you don't have the time to explore them, but once you do finally have that luxury, you may end up drawing a blank.

To help you out with some drawing ideas, we spoke to a professional artists and illustrators, and asked them what they draw to relax, to practise and to stretch their creative muscles. We hope their suggestions will inspire you to forge your own drawing rituals, and get those creative juices flowing. For some more practical insight into drawing certain things, see our how to draw tutorials.
