Some days the process of creating a new print is easy, some days are hard and it takes much longer. There are many articles on the process of creativity out there. The most simplified and relatable one is about 5 stages of Making Art.
Stage 1- Inspiration
Stage 2- Percolation (processing and refining one's idea-sketching, moodboards)
Stage 3- Preparation (painting or drawing simple sketches on wacom tablet)
Stage 4- Creation (fine-tuning colors and drawing intensively on Illustrator or Photoshop)
Stage 5- Reflection

1. Does the print looks resolved?
2. Are we going to wear the print? Will our #lullyselbsquad wear it?
3. The first instinct is always right.
I hope you gained some insight on what goes behind the scenes of creating our prints.
