My messy pencil – about hidden strengths.

Have you heard the saying "your mess is your message?"

I think there is something true in there.

During many years as a graphic designer, I didn't do illustrations, because my lines were crooked and the whole thing looked „too messy“.

Until one day I had the lightbulb idea to make exactly the messiness "my thing". And I haven't looked back.

Now I do exactly what is EASY for me. And it works!

Last week a client said, "your drawing style is perfect because it is nice and clear and it doesn't look… too perfect".

And I thought "ha!"

Is there something you love doing but you think you can't because it is not "professional" enough? Maybe there is a way to make exactly this to your signature feature!
