While I’ve always fancied myself a creative-type, I’ve always felt a bit embarrassed about my drawing abilities.  I mean, you’d get the point of what I was drawing, but things always had a cartoonish-this-isn’t-real quality.  The whole reason I took photography as my elective throughout high school is because I reasoned, “If you can’t draw, photograph.”

Anyway, my drawing self-confidence is way up, thanks to a fashion illustration class I’ve been taking.  I don’t know if it’s my teacher specifically, but when someone breaks down the drawing process, things just come together.  I know I have many hours of practice ahead of me, but just knowing that I can get my ideas down on paper has really gotten the creative wheels turning.
