"When drawing was fun"

At last! I've decided to jump onto the art blog bandwagon. I don't feel I have been drawing enough and thought this would be a good way to try and keep drawing. I can't promise the most brilliant chicken scratches (although, I bet they're better than any farm chicken can do!), but I'll try my best to keep this up. I can't help but think of the little engine who could. . ."I think I can, I think I can. . ."

"The little drawer who could. . ." Well, I'm not so little anymore. . .and I don't think I can. . .
I know I can (although sometimes, I don't think I can. . .but that's in moments of frustration and we all have those every once in a while).

The other night, I was thinking about how I used to draw as a kid. . .and remembered those wonderful days of bliss when drawing was fun; when one could sit down with a box of crayons or a pencil and draw, draw, draw without hearing commentary from classes, teachers, peers, art directors, and the most critical self playing in one's head. The world was a lot more innocent back then ;p

So I thought for my first post, I'd post some sketches about my memories of drawing:







Hope you enjoy!

Well I'm envious already. Only recently did I discover your scary talent. Every time I see your work it mocks me like a little naked boy at a sporting event, yet I'm always compelled to look at it and appreciate your ability. And I know what you mean about everyone putting in their 2 cents commenting on your art and how it sours the entire experience. Things like this is what keeps the creative spark alive....keep it up. Best of luck to you.

Oh man, reading your post brought back so many drawing memories from my youth. I remember I could draw a tree like no other 2nd grader could! Thanks for the memories!!!

I'm sure we would've been good friends back in 1989
