I don’t think I’ve actually drawn anything since I did art in high school. Fair to say I was put off it because my art teacher always wanted our work to be done HER way even though art is supposed to be about self expression. I flunked art because my work didn’t meet a “good enough criteria” since then I was put off art because it felt like something I had to be good at and do to a certain standard. No freedom to it.
Today however I was inspired to draw again by a book turned movie called ‘It’s kind of a funny story’ I won’t go into too much detail about it because you know… spoilers but I decided to draw my favourite character called Noelle.
I doubt it’s something that my old art teacher would approve of but I like it. It feels good to do something for myself and not for a grade.
