I decided to challenge myself and make a sketch blog. My goal will be one sketch per day. Seems a bit ambitious for a brand new mom who has no idea what she's doing, but oh well.
I've been drawing ever since I can remember, although I always suspected I would never become a Disney animator, professional comic book illustrator, or video game concept artist like most chronic sketchers tend to dream about. Instead, I got a degree in biology, my other love. I spent almost two years working at a zoo after college graduation teaching children, handling animals, and raising awareness about conservation issues. Drawing seemed a hobby that would never turn into a profitable use of my time. My pseudo-talent would always remain that: untrained, unfulfilled, unnecessary.
So why sketch at all? I think the answer is, and always will be, "Just for fun." Developing any potential within will simply be for my own amusement. Nevertheless, I am not closed to opportunity and will always, albeit naively, look for work "on the side" to provide supplemental income for our little family.
This blog will mostly be for myself, though feedback is very welcome and highly appreciated.
