Creative consultant Tyler Higgs has been a lifetime creative individual who subserviently comes up with a new creative daily piece then post it on Instagram without any title as he wants to make an open-ended interpretation. His dedication, consistency, and simplicity is enough to completely sets him apart from other creative clichés. If you’re a fan of Instagram, then you should include his works on your feed.

The beginning of his daily doodles
Together with a fellow artist, Tyler Higgs began his road to daily doodles in the beginning of 2014. The task requires him to finish a piece of artwork in a short amount of time then posting it on Instagram. This routine was inspired by his long time favorite comic book artists Kenneth Rocafort. In fact, this kind of activity energizes his day to day work because it excercise his ideas and thinking and keeps his illustration skills creative and sharp. “By completing the sketches in an hour, it helps me take a bit of time each day to focus on something fun for myself and make sure I maintain my artistic skills,” he explains.

Having a sketchbook as a kid
Tyler shares that he often had a sketchbook as a kid. As a matter of fact, the nearest paper, napkin, or anything that he could draw will become his canvas. “Most of my sketches and drawings as a kid were often on loose paper that I would get wherever I happened to be,” he says.

Source of inspiration
His subject matter is largely inspired by his imagination and how he convey things, life events, social issues, and more events around him. “Since I was young, I have always had a very fantastical imagination and art has been my outlet for showing and sharing it with others,” he explains. He enjoyed doing more abstract pieces as it helps him convey a larger part of himself. Morover, he wants the viewers to have a more personal glimpse of his creations with great story. “I want to assure to give them a better understanding of what I am expressing from my mind,” he shares.

Doodling as an icebreaker
Tyler describes doodling as his way of clearing his mind and relaxing from the day and events that have transpired. He also shared that doodling is a fun and engaging way to keep our ideas fresh and have the will to try out new things in illustration and other choices of media.

A piece of advice to all aspiring artists
Practice. Continue practicing everyday. Use your inspiration to practice some more. Your mind is your greatest asset beyond any medium you will come across. Push it your skills and never give up. I was fortunate to have an artistic father who taught me the fundamentals of creativity while I was growing up. He even gave me plenty of creative outlets to try and push my skills. If you have the opportunity to work with and learn from an artist around you, embrace that opportunity. You will never regret it.
