So I just did my last ever exams ever. I graduate in a month or two, which means... I have time for art again! So I've got a brand new sketchbook, and I broke out the watercolours today for the first time in years.
I didn't realise how much I MISSED art until yesterday, I picked up a pencil for the first time in three or four years and started to sketch, and it was like something fell into place. I'd suppressed my artistic side for so long that I'd forgotten how much I love it and how important it is to me.
It was my whole life for a long time and I basically shut it in the cupboard while I was in uni because I didn't trust myself to prioritise other things over it. I guess when I started uni I'd been drawing my whole life, so I took it for granted. It was only after I stopped, and stopped for a LONG time, that I realised I don't want to give it up. So I've decided from now on whatever I'm doing, writing, working a 9-5, I'm going to make time to draw.
Anyway, sap story over. Expect ALL the comments as I work through my dA inbox.
