I know that multitasking is bad. Everyone can agree that a person can really focus on one/two things at a time. Also, often while procrastinating, people do activities that are totally unrelated to the stuff they really have to do. Procrastination happens when serious work is waiting to get done but our mind is still sleeping. Have you been there? I have (watching tv series while I should be studying is the worst)!
Some days just have to be slow and procrastination is not always bad. The balance between work & rest is very important! As artists, we have a lot of stuff that needs to be done but doesn't require a lot of attention. So what tasks can be completed while binge watching Netflix all evening?Read More

As the real paper will for sure be my number one option, digital device is always around and more comfortable to use one the go.
For this reason I decided to share two of my favorite apps for capturing ideas, thoughts and random sketches.Read More

Let me first tell you, that I'm not a "tech" person. All the coding and computer stuff looks like a dark forest for me! However, when I want something done - I do my best.
