This week I have been unusually nostalgic about my art career so far. I think its because I went back to my roots this week with a drawing that I did for a friend of mine, Marlon who is a DJ. I don't know what you started using as art supplies when you were younger, but I used colored pencils and ink, like ALL the time! Maybe cause where I grew up there were no art supplies around, so I used what I had for school.
Now some of you may know that -I- am a total nerd. Yup. I grew up playing Nintendo, watching Star Trek, and yes, reading comic books. Comic books were my first art lesson. I mean think about it, dudes running around in tights? What an awesome anatomy lesson! Ahhh yes, I wanted to be a penciler for Marvel Comics as a teenager. Quite a big dream I had, but things change like everything else. This image here is a dusty ol' drawing to show you. I drew this 10 or so years ago when I was just beginning college. This was my Amazon character in the PC game Diablo 2, which I played with my guy friends and brothers. It was pretty evident how much I used coloring pencils back then, and how I always get nostalgic when I use them now. Its like opening a scrapbook of my life. Either way, I'm still a nerdy girl, who STILL plays Nintendo, who STILL watches Star Trek, and who plans on playing Diablo 2 this weekend. Awesome. ;-)
