I’m not a very good drawer but it’s something that I’ve always enjoyed. I’ve always found it interesting that when we’re young, drawing is such large part of our creative expression.

As we grow up, we seem to loose that creativity and imagination. We start to limit our minds to what we’re taught is possible. I’m only 22 years old and I’ve discovered how much creativity and spontaneity I’ve lost over the last 4 years or so. Working in high level I.T. forced me to mature quickly and drop those ‘childish’ ambitions, thoughts and dreams.

Time to get those creative thoughts flowing again. Growing up shouldn’t be about loosing our youthfulness, creativity and imagination.

So my drawing journey begins. I look forward to humoring you with my drawing adventures! I’ll post a few drawings from my Tasmania trip tomorrow.

Jan 18 2010 update: I can’t find my sketch pad, I think it’s in the other car that I lent to a mate.

  1. It’s funny, isn’t it – I used to draw a lot as a kid too, but haven’t done much of it since I finished high school. Back then it was a nice means of distraction from whatever I was supposed to be learning ;)

    I think one thing is that as kids we don’t mind drawing something that looks ‘silly’, but as we grow up, we think that we have do it perfectly or not at all…and probably opt for the latter.

    1. I think you’re right Nick. We tend to not bother because we feel silly drawing imperfect pictures.

      I’m looking forward to sharing some of my very silly looking drawings. I’ve finally found my sketch pad from Tassie.
