-“Me?!?! no way!!! I can’t draw!”
A couple of years ago, someone told me “everybody can draw”, and I didn’t think it was true… But, because I’m a bit stubborn and I love learning new things, I thought I would prove that person wrong… And I started to learn drawing with a book called “Drawing for the absolute and utter beginner” by Claire Watson Garcia. So, I started practising, and indeed, it’s not easy, but with time and exercises, it starts looking better every day.
And then I realized that person was right! And thanks for pushing me, because I’m now in love with drawing and making things myself!
Here are a few examples of the different tasks I drew.
And some landscapes!
During the past months, I started making personalized postcards and posters for my friends, and family. Just because it’s nice to think about the person, about something they would like and create a drawing especially for them. I’m not yet ready to make original drawings but with a nice example I can copy and make some cool things!
Thanks to this drawing experience, I was even able to design the logo for this blog !!! The firefly with a travel-bug original drawing was then made into this super cool design and turned into tote bags and t-shirts by my friend Loïc from Loackme.
