And here I thought I'd do a special 1000th drawing, but there's so much to be said about just doing what you do and everything becomes what it will.
This blog was started almost 3 years ago when I realized that after my Mom had died, I stopped drawing as much, or as joyfully, as I once did. It was a hard conclusion to come to, because as much as my mother is and perhaps will always be the most important person in my life, my art is as much a part of who - and what - I am. And once I realized how much I wasn't doing, I felt a hole. And that I wasted so much time.
I may not be the best illustrator, but this is me, and I began this blog in order to keep drawing, even when I didn't want to. And I can make an effort to commemorate a particular event, but each time I put color to pen or pixel, it's a commemoration in and of itself. I can only hope that the few people who make it a point to look at this blog can see that while my work may not be always at its best, my work is quite possibly the best part of me.
