Been stuck at a creative impass, looking for the umami of aesthetic design in my work and only finding scattered pieces of a bigger puzzle.

      Thanks! It’s kinda that starving artist itch that’s gotten me recently, not in the literal sense though, more so in that I’m trying to find the next step, pizazz, or energy. It’s that craving to see something new or see what’s next, and to experiment with it all.

        ohhhhhhhhh man if you have 13$ i'd highly recommend reading The Creative Habit...! my old textbook from my graduation year, this thing is a great source for finding out where to go next! it has some weird parts of it, and the author is definitely entrenched in her own history, so some parts of it need a grain of salt. but hey, what book is perfect? i still totally recommend this:

        https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Twyla_Tharp_The_Creative_Habit?id=UR10E4QU_7IC

        this thing has all sorts of tried and tested mini-activities that can be made into a routine to help invigorate creative problems.

        and even if you don't give it a shot, i hope you find some ways to 'sneak up on your work' to catch it from a new perspective.

              :V the only thing I found researching online was a shading exercise, is that the one you were referring to? Otherwise its the first time I've heard of it.
