I’m not much of an artist…

Posted on November 5, 2021

I have been following Austin Kleon for a while now, but lately have been paying closer attention. I’ve also been doing some more self-reflection recently and I’m thinking that drawing might be a good way to do some of that.

I’m not much of an artist but decided to purchase a brush pen. Here were some first attempts in kind of the same style as Austin’s diary pages:

I will admit that I feel a little silly drawing and in some ways it feels childlike… or maybe that it’s a waste of time. I’m not sure if this is something I will keep up in the long run, but it’s something I’m exploring right now. After all, Austin Kleon mentions that in Christophe Blain’s book Isaac The Pirate it says “Drawing isn’t work, it’s a form of prayer.”
