Where to find inspirations for your textile design and illustrations?

First, you need to define some themes to organize your patterns and illustrations. These theme can be "plants", "Stripes", "Objects around the home" or "symbols" etc... You can find some inspirations outside, inside your home, across some books or on the internet. 

The second step is to grab a notebook or stack of white paper & draw some black drawings (line style not plain shape) on your paper. Draw as much as possible on one single piece of paper. These are for 2 reasons: it will be faster to digitized (using my method) & you'll get a wide range of different shapes/drawings to choose from.
