It's time for our next Love Your Work feature! Today's talented guest is Gabrielle of Hippie Go Lucky, who has kindly shared some of her illustrations with us. Gabrielle is also a relatively new addition to my sidebar, so I hope you will pop over to her blog and send her some love!
Could you explain your work to us?
I am a graphic designer by day and a photographer by night. I also sing and draw.
How did you get into that?
I studied photography for two years, it really helped develop my creative side. I feel I've always been an artistic person so I pretty much knew that I'd be doing something creative for the rest of my life.
Best thing about what you do?
The best thing is to make something that acts as an extension of myself. To see the physical result of my imagination.
What's the hardest part?The hardest part is creating. As silly as it sounds. It has to come naturally to me, I can't force myself to do it. If it's not there on that day or in that particular moment then I have to let it go for the time being and come back to it later on.
Where do you work best?
I work best early in the morning. That's when I'm most inspired, when the sunrises, with a coffee in my hand and some good music.
What's the first thing you do when you start a new project?
The first thing I do is put music on. For me it defines the mood, brings a lot of emotions and gets my thoughts going.
What inspires you?People. People interacting, their behavior and emotions. Humans are fascinating.
Thanks so much Gabrielle! I totally agree there, humans are fascinating and definitely high on my inspirations list. How sweet are her illustrations??
