Okay so I just got back from my friend's wedding and I had been kicking the idea of starting one of these fancy shmancy blog-thing-a-majig for a while but I was just too lazy.
So what got me to get off my ass and post? Well, for some reason, at the wedding I realized how much time had passed since college. So many of my friends are starting families and beginning their "grown up" life and I couldn't help thinking what had changed in me since college.
I thought about how I used to draw for the love of it and how much I missed creating something all my own. It's funny cuz I really don't like to draw anymore. I've built my career around making other people's ideas/stories come to life on screen that I never really had the chance to take pride in something that was inherently me...
So when I arrived home, I decided that I would use this blog to light a fire under my ass and do just what I really missed ....
So as my first piece I present one of the earliest drawings I did when I was in college that I was really really proud of. I look at it now and I see a whole LOT of mistakes but back then, this was really the pinnacle of what I could do and it was a great inspiration for me.
As for the title of this blog, I guess you could say that, for me, drawing is extremely frustrating, time consuming, and downright mean on most days. But on the days where inspiration hits and your lines can do no wrong, it's magical.
