SKETCHBOOK: Mechanical Pen Sketches


Emptying My Thoughts/Future/Self-Doubt

A lot of times, I question where my life is going.  So far, I’ve been enjoying what I’ve been doing. I’ve been doing a lot of artwork this year, which makes me very happy. It took me a while to figure out what I actually wanted out of life, but I realized that I am an artist at heart. I draw a lot, even throughout the night when I should be sleeping. Though I love drawing, I’m still scared of the future. I fear that I’m not good enough to become an artist. I think most artists feel that way from time to time. There are days where I feel like I want to quit and not become an artist because I feel like I can’t compete with everyone else. Yet, I still manage to pick up my sketchbook and draw, regardless of what others think of my art. I love to draw! No doubt about it. It’s hard for me not to doodle on a scrap of notebook paper. I don’t think anyone should throw away what they love just because they don’t believe that what they do is not important enough. Just do what you love and own it! You can’t hide what you truly love forever; it will eventually follow you back. Believe me, I’ve thrown away my old drawings when I was in high school because I thought they were ‘useful’. I ended up having more drawings then before and I couldn’t be happier.
