I Can Draw!
Ear Phones

Maxell looks like llaxew upside down.

While I consider myself to be an artistic person, I hardly think of myself as a true artist. Still, once in a while I like to draw random shit. I find that it is relaxing and somewhat mind numbing.

As I sit and watch 43 Windows Updates apply to old machines, it is nice to let my mind wander and waste some ink.

I have posted a few of the drawings that I have made so that you can see the level of talent I have and judge for yourself. Certainly nothing special, but I think there is a decent likeness to the objects I was trying to recreate.


Do you hear? The Alpha... and the Omega... death and rebirth... and as you die, so will I be reborn!

I was actually a bit surprised to see the earphones come out as well as they did. You can see parts of it look like the strokes had much more confidence than others. I definitely felt like I was out of alignment with a few of those lines. In the end I like how it came out.

To me, the interesting thing is I never know what I am going to draw before I start drawing it. I usually start doodling and then just go with whatever I have put down on the paper. Nine out of ten times, it is just a crappy little doodle. Still, once in a while I do see something start to take shape, and I'll just go with it. It isn't until I am almost done that I usually think about what I've been up to and at that point I'm generally happy with the results.

Not Sure

I'm not sure exactly what I drew here.

I used to have a drawing tablet attached to my computer and would draw on that. But I found that everything I would draw felt fake. Digital lines made of pixels are pretty much what I stare at all day every day. The break from that to a yellow pad of paper with blue and red lines seems so much more... real.

So now you know that I can draw. Perhaps you think I draw well, so so, or poorly. It is what it is... So do you ever draw things around you? Do your doodles ever become anything more than scribbles and circles?

Head to the forums to discuss.
