Sketching his way through
I entered the world of drawing when I was 6. Many things inspire me to draw today. Ever since I saw the movie The Chronicles of Narnia, I have loved fantasy creatures. Likewise, superheroes have fascinated me for as long as I can remember. More recently, I have been impressed by the details of Marvel and DC Comics character drawings. My preferred drawing style is cartoons.
My passion for drawing took a new turn when I began attending West University Elementary in first grade; everything was unfamiliar. I did not have the courage to make friends and focused only on class work. At school there was a bookmark contest, with two winners to be chosen for each grade level. I was so excited to finally have a chance to show my passion to my school. When I arrived home I started working on my bookmark. After I finished I turned in the bookmark and waited. A week later I was announced as one of the bookmark winners in the first grade. As a result, my bookmark was sold at Barnes and Noble.
I love to draw, but for many reasons. Drawing is a way for me to express my feeling of freedom. This allows me to draw whatever I want, in any style. All I have to do is bring a sketch book with me wherever I go and I can draw anywhere.
Yes, I love drawing, but I recognize it might not pay my bills when I grow up. For my career I have several things I am interested in doing for a living. I’m thinking of being a lawyer like my father since I’m good at arguing with facts. I’m also interested in being an architect because I sometimes like to draw buildings.
Drawing is a special hobby. It is one that I must practice to master, and one that I will continue.
