Found at my doorstep, in the return envelope I sent him.

Time to buy a frame!

To be completely honest, I don't know much about drawing. I took a few art classes in high school, but didn't learn much there. Anything I've really learned has come from experience when I was a kid, drawing eyes over and over again or doodling on the wall (seriously, for some reason my parents let me have a wall that I could draw on).

Recently I've decided to broaden my horizons and learn the tricks of the trade a little more. So, staring February 8th, I'm taking a class about the "Fundamentals of Drawing" from a place called The Drawing Studio. The classes are 3 hours long, once a week, and I'll be done in late March. When it's over, I might take another class, depending if I like it.

The idea of this is pretty terrifying, seeing as my last experience with school didn't go so well (depression, dropping out, etc). But hey, there are no grades, it's about something I'm interested in, and I'll have more blog posts! To make it even more fun, my sister Jessica and my brother in-law Casey have decided to take the class with me! So even if it turns out to suck we can make fun of it together.

So bear with me people, I might have some boring pictures of "this is a still-life I had to draw for class", but in the end hopefully I'll be better at drawing and have more confidence in myself. Wish me luck!

The Year in Pictures

No, this doesn't have anything to do with drawing. Now that we've gotten that out of the way...

I stole this idea from Nico. It's 2008, summed up by one picture per month.











And my New Year's resolution- to draw more!!!
