How long have I been doing this blog thing? Over a year and a half? How often have you seen me draw my parents? NONE! Because it SCARES me! Couldn't really tell you why, but decided it was high time to buckle down and just do it. Who am I kidding? I know why it scares me. Because I don't want to mess them up. Draw them wrong. My dad sent me a link to a podcast (see below) with an interview by Lynda Barry. She's written a couple books that I've only glanced at, What It Is, being one of them. Her main message in the interview is that we should all just create. Draw for fun without worrying about what it looks like. We are all capable of creating in our own way and that is what's important. It helped give me the courage I needed to tackle drawing my parents, people who I don't want to draw "wrong."
So, there you go mom and dad. Love you guys. Thanks for all your support!
Today's inspiration comes from a Lynda Barry podcast.
