When I spent my two weeks sick on the couch, I got super bored. So I went out and bought a kid's big drawing tablet and markers. I filled the WHOLE THING with my weird drawings. Forty pages.
This past weekend, I took said tablet to my parents to show them the fruits of my labor.
And to my surprise, both of my parents said I'm a really good artist! Can you believe it?! I'm not used to such validation! Naturally, my ego has swelled beyond comprehension.
And here I used to think that I have the artistic ability of a very talented 10 year old.
(I do have an Art History degree and have studied the masters, but instead I draw sea creatures, cocktails and gay pirate flags.)
