I love grids, and the scale and structure it provides. but I am also not trapped by a rigidity that one assumes with grids-i call it more of a guide than a grid. I sketch all my ideas on grid paper, but I ran out of it last week.
(i will “pen” a separate post on my writing and drawing materials…:))
To help me out in a pinch I decided to print a grid/dot paper of the internet. once I got hold of a good template, I took it to the next level by personalizing it with color to imitate various paper backgrounds, the official logo, and some well-appointed coffee and ink stains. In the week I have had it, its become a huge part of my brand, but I also loved the idea of having this online, so I can sketch on my computer-talk about 2 birds with one stone
