Art is basically my life.
"Why do you like to draw?" People ask me. Well I do not simply "draw" the way most people see it. I create, I speak, I feel, and I express with the strokes and tool marks of a pencil, a pen, a brush, possibly even a mouse. I do not create because I can. I do not create because it is expected of me. I do not create for a self made image. I do not create for the world. I do not create for the people in it.
"Why?" They ask me.
What I long to answer is, "Because I want to. Because it is my passion, my life, my soul. Because it is who I am. I do it for me, myself, and no one else."
But I don't BECAUSE it is my passion, my life, my soul. So instead I respond, "I don't know." Because words aren't enough, the "drawing" that they see, or I should say don't see, are the words of my heart which I cannot find any other way to express with justice. If someone could interpret my art down to the very first mark I had made upon the blank canvas, they would know me truly, and fully, to the very bottom of my soul. As scary a thought that might be, I think it might be refreshing to have a person understand me completely even if it were for just one moment, because sometimes I'm not even sure I understand myself.

I really enjoy painting more than drawing. I do a lot with water color and I've started to get into oils. Most of my work though is pen/ink and colored pencil. I have really started to delve into my work and I use it now more than ever as a way of expression. Even the smallest of doodles, or practices are some part of my soul in one form or another.
I am an art student still which is indeed stressful work, so I don't upload often...
    I have this habit, maybe not so much a habit, but a tendency to leave the last few pages in my sketch book blank. I'm not sure what it is, I simply cannot bring myself to fill them. One could say that I'm thinking too much about it, or I am going about it the wrong way. As soon as I notice I only have those last precious pages my mind goes blank. Or rather, my mind goes blank of anything worthy enough. I mean, they're the LAST PAGES they have to be awesome, right? The immediate answer my brain comes up with is, no. They're the last pages, what makes them any better than the first ones? Nothing. They are exactly the same. But there is still that inability to fill them. Because I think about it too much, and all I do is think about it they remain as always untouched. 
    The point of this is to explain why I don't have a sketchbook. I know, it's disgraceful. I'm a warrior without a practice dummy. Please, retain your gasps and shrieks of horror.  
    You could say I am between sketchbooks at the moment. I just "finished" up my last one and I am simply waiting for the funds to purchase a newer fancier one. Probably not fancy, but new. The move has taken up all of my time, doctors and rent have taken up all of my munnies. So is the life of the struggling artist. But plenty of artists survive without a sketchbook. It's not the only way to practice, or deposit the mind and soul.

I am at last in my own space. Freedom, 'tis wonderful.
