    The Accidental Caricature Artist

    I bought one of those index card-sized sketch books for family get togethers. The idea was to have a fun activity for everyone, as each time we all gathered, we would all sketch the same photo of one family member. It was a hit with everyone but my brother, who attempted to...

    I Love Drawing..

    I LOVE to draw. Even when I was little I loved it. But I wish I was better at it. I am better than a lot of kids my age but when I draw it never turns out like I thought in my head.

    I used to enjoy drawing.

    I remember the days when I could just draw something and not give a crap about what anyone else says about it. Those days are long gone. Now, I can't even enjoy drawing anymore because I'm so obsessed with whether or not it's good enough. I can't even doodle because my lines are...

    Feeling Envious But Wistful

    I love drawing but lately I haven't had much time or the desk space and as you probably know - my drawings aren't the best ones. My sister is miracle worker in sketching by hand and editing on Photoshop though sometimes I wish I could draw my OCs, favorite characters and other...

    Wish I Could Get Better

    -I wish I could draw comics. It's a ridiculous dream nagging me somewhere in the back of my head. I don't like talking about it, because whenever I make a reference to comics, regardless of whether they are American or Japanese, I get ridiculed by people, since apparently it's...
