Well...I've always drawn - starting at a young age like most. However, as I got older and other interests came and went, drawing slowly slipped out of my life until I just didn't do at all anymore. As a professional, I used my drawing/art sensibilities for graphic design purposes - logos, websites, etc. Just recently, I picked up the pencil and paper and began to draw again. This time for a specific purpose - picture books.
I was surprised to find that this type of drawing hasn't come easy for me. I feel like I'm having to rethink how I "see" things. I'm learning to pay closer attention to line, light, composition, expression - things I never really focused on before. Understanding what types of images resonate with young readers is definately a learning experience...I'm getting there.
Art classes, books, tutorials and practice - yes (always).
Art degree - no.
Hope you enjoy the images in my gallery and find my style one that will resonate with you as well.
