"I am always doing that which I can not do,
in order that I may learn how to do it." – Picasso
At the last minute today I decided to get over my fear of being in the presence of "real artists." So, I did a very quick sketch of this week's Illustration Friday topic and submitted it.
The topic is "hollow," so I whipped up this little drawing, gave it a quick color wash and was, all in all, pretty pleased with it, and also pretty pleased with myself for working up the nerve to join in with all those amazingly talented people.
That was until I noticed that all my hatred of this dang heat and the subsequent pining for fall has created a little bit of an anachronistic flaw in this illustration. Baby birds? In the fall?
Oh well. It's my world and I can draw it any way I want to. Right?
There's lots of other flaws in this sketch. Lots. But that's alright. It's a start.
Now it's your turn. Go out and do something that scares you. Even if you mess it up, you'll still be proud of yourself.
Have a great weekend, folks!
