I can't draw


So many people say this don't they? I think it's something to do with the way art used to be taught, where unless you could do photo-realistic or really good authentic capture of things then you were told you can't draw. It sticks with you at a young age.

I still feel like I can't draw, mostly because what I want to see when I pick up a pen or a pencil never appears. On this note, it's the same for playing pool. I can see where I want to hit the ball and what angle is needed but I can't make my hands do this.

For that reason I rarely draw in my journal. I prefer to write.

But every now and then I feel the urge.

Here's one that actually looks a lot like I wanted it to.

Thanks for reading,
