i was crawling before i could walk...






...and i was drawing before i could sew.
i have been looking thru alot of illustrations lately, i'm in awe of the talent out there! feeling abit nostalgic last night, i decided to looks thru my old art books and portfolios from six years ago. and then i started to reminisce about how much i loved sitting down spending hours sketching and painting. looking back at my work from Senior High now i wonder - "how the hell did i do that?" . i remember i hated drawing hair and hands, but i didn't do a bad job of it. 
my year 12 major art project was called Death Tells the Truth, a celebration of the life of my most favourite music artist Aaliyah, who died at the age of 22 in a plane crash in 2001. She was my inspiration since my early years of primary school thru till now. 

until the end of the week i will be posting up any artworks of mine that i can find. i really want to get back into visual arts, it was such a big part of my life. is it possible to forget how to draw?...
medium: lead and coloured pencils.

wow, your drawings are incredible!
You should try and get back into art for sure.
I stopped doing art for a while and thought I had forgotten how too, but I am slowly picking it up again.

You've always been the artist...even when we were just ten years old and knew nothing of the world.

Keep it up, you're incredible.
