Why I started this blog

I have always been drawing. But in recent years, I have been doing a lot of thinking about drawing, too.

I have been picking apart the process and the purpose, and stumbled upon surprising lessons and helpful ideas. Ideas that helped me draw better, see better, and walk around happier.

I created this blog to share those ideas, and to keep developing them. I believe they are useful to anyone with a visual mind, involved in visual work, or interested in furthering their visual sensitivity.

I will post short articles twice a week, on topics like

What is a good illustration, and how do they come to be?
Do illustrators train their hand? Their mind? Their eyes?
What is illustration for? What can it do?
Where does inspiration come from?
Should illustrations be personal? Or detached from the maker’s ego?
