You might wonder why my latest blog entries are illustrated with my own drawings. Storyboard exercises to be exact.
Well, there are two reasons for this.
One reason is that I spend a lot of time to find the right image in places like Wikimedia Commons and then adapt it in size and style; time that tend to be longer and longer, since it seems I have used my favorites.
The other reason is I need the exercise. I like to draw, and I know I can draw, but am out of practice. And I’ve never had any confidence in drawing humans and faces.
So I combine two pleasures in one and use my own images as illustrations. They are no master pieces, but they’ll have to do. I prefer to spend my time drawing and develop my skills rather than searching among classic paintings for a suitable image.
