more drawings - cute is growing on me, though I wish I could be more edgy.

It has been a rather productive year here on Pikaland, and we’re just talking about the posts! We know that some of you may not have been able to catch up, but here’s a tip – inspiration-based posts and discussions are held every Monday, and it’s something I’d love to continue into the new year.

So without further ado, here’s a top 5 list of posts that gathered quite a few feedback from our readers and is also among my favorites so far:

1. Why artists and illustrators should get a job

Here I share about what I still do to keep food on my table while I keep Pikaland running; and what you can do too.

2. Why artists and illustrators should blog

Keeping a blog is going to change the way you look at your work and connect with others. And no literary-prize winning writing skills needed at all!

3. 100 things to draw

I made up a list of 100 things to draw – for fun. Available as a free downloadable PDF!

4. Copycats and lessons we can learn

Take a leaf from the fashion industry and see what you can do about copycats. Hint: it’s a new way of thinking about the issue at hand! See also Creativity, competition and copycats.

5. Illustration and innovation

Don’t just do what’s current – experiment, fail often and throw lots of ideas around!

And whoa! Can you believe it’s a mere two more days before 2012 is here? I’ve resolved to draw more, and you can see some of my work in progress over at Instagram (my username is pikaland!)

  1. Hey, nice posts! I enjoyed reading all the comments in the first one. My suggestion is to start a series of “confessional booth” posts such as” the most strange illustration job that I ever had” or “the time I almost copied someone’s work” or “the time I sold my soul for money” 
    Happy New Year!
