Learn By Imitation
Two of my favorite blogs are Wait But Why and More To That. Both have a unique style and utilize simple, playful drawings to explain profound ideas.
Inspired by their work, I want to experiment with using illustrations to help convey my ideas. The only problem is I haven’t drawn anything since high school art class.
One of my illustrator friends suggested I copy a bunch of Wait But Why and More to That’s drawings and over time I’ll see the patterns and be able to create my own.
This reminds me of my friends Rishi’s advice to copy the work of authors I admire to improve my own writing.
Learning by imitating is a great way to improve in any field.
