What's your fuel?
My first thread here, and I'd like to know what do you do while you create. What are you habits, the music you listen too, the tea you drink, if you make some time outs while you work, how's your workspace like and so on.
The first thing I do is to kind of organize my desk (it's always a mess). Get my tablet in the perfect position and the keyboard behind it, like I'm going to a battle (if there was battles with keyboards and tablets). My mouse stays close too, with my Threadless mouse pad under it, muahaha... Next thing is to open my Music folder and choose something from Queen, Hans Zimmer or anything epic like Two Steps From Hell, Epic Score, Audiomachine, etc... Can't work without it... Sometimes my girlfriend awesome (well, she's awesome all the time (in the remote case she reads this)) and she brings me a cup of tea, wich is healthy, warmy, and makes me feel cozy while working and it's an instant break while reaching for it. But for bigger breaks I smoke a cigarette...Yup, I'm dumb like that, a smoker... and it completely kills the healthy part of the tea...
I also have on Threadless artists a huge part of my inspiration, looking for different styles, trying to understand how someone did this and that. I have a folder on my desktop with random designs from a lot of you guys that I save just to show me how much I need to keep doing what I do to be better.
So, I think that's that. If you want to ask me anything, please be my guest. And let me know how do you guys do your thing.
Happy designing!!! :D
