    I Think So

    I tend to be creative when I have the time and resources. Doesn't matter what. I will give it all a try. It's nice to make something on your own. Whether for yourself or others, it feels good. I like surprising myself with what I do and if I had more time I think I could do a lot...

    I love drawing. My best work is out of no where.

    If I plan to do something awesome I see in my head it won't come out right. So I draw out of random. I love creative people. Most inspire me and sometimes when I draw out of inspiration I drown in music and pencils and eraser shavings. And when I'm done I end up having shading...

    More So Than I Thought...

    I've always felt I've been a creative person. Not artistically, but in many other areas. Lately though, I've been getting a lot of enjoyment out of getting creative with art. It's kind of scary as a self professed perfectionist to surrender and see the beauty in imperfection...
