Do you want to draw better? I do. I know that the only thing that makes one better at drawing is to draw, but it is hard to find the time. It really shouldn't be. It takes only 20 or 30 minutes a day to make a drawing, but it seems I rarely make that little space of drawing time. So I decided to start a drawing blog! My hope is that some of you will join with me and we will draw together.
I pondered how to start—there are so many ways to draw, so many books to study, so many kinds of drawing media. In the end I think the best place to start is to just draw. So, if you want to follow along, take off your shoe and draw it. Use any kind of pen or pencil you like. Look carefully at your shoe. Notice the details. Notice the proportions. Draw it carefully. Erase if you need to. Toss it away and start over if you need to, but don't spend more than 30 minutes on it. Don't worry if it isn't perfect. This is your starting point. Write the date on it. Put it away and save it. You will enjoy looking at it later to see how much your drawing has improved!
