I’ve been working as an illustrator for almost 10 years, and I can’t count the number of times people admit to not being able to draw, yet seem to wish they could. Perhaps, as most claim, I don’t understand why people who want to draw just don’t do it because it comes so naturally to me. But, I’ve come to the opinion that even if you think you can’t draw, you should.
I love getting drawings from others. My bedroom wall has my favourite manga drawings from my summer students who take my “Learn to Draw Manga” JSANO School of the Arts program. And don’t we all love getting drawings from those we love, too, even if it’s not “good”? I try to persuade my family, my friends, and my boyfriend to draw something for me, every once in a while. The reason? I love looking at something someone has created and seeing a glimpse of their thinking. It’s really interesting to me to see how people are solving creative problems and how their using their imagination.
I encourage you to draw. Don’t be scared. Don’t worry about making “mistakes” or what it ends up looking like. Just doodle away! Keep making more and more. Draw anything!
And send it to me!
