Icons and fan art
When my sketchbook is stale and I'm not feeling inspired, I look to pop culture for inspiration and ideas. I'm also a fan of other artists, and channeling some of their works through my own hands is immensely satisfying. It's an exercise that pushes you to analyze and rethink a thing that's interesting to me, and I always end up learning or discovering something new in the process.
