Born To Draw

I loved to draw from a very early age. I was surrounded by people encouraging me to draw. I devoured comic books, picture books, cartoons, art on placemats, art on the walls at church, anything.               My mom went to many yard sales and would bring home any art material she found. I had a variety of pens, pencils, graphite sticks, conte, chalk pastels, oil pastel, markers, everything that existed. I was not limited to flair pens and crayons like my peers.               I drew a lot of war and super friends. Sometimes vehicles. Airplanes. Lots of airplanes. Someone got me a book, TITLETITLETITLE, that taught how to draw a wide variety of animals, insects, birds, and fantasy creatures by combining letters and numbers. The book is quite clever, better than most that do the same thing. It holds up well also. I have used it in my substitute teaching.               This book was the first thing that gave me confidence in my abilities. I began to strive to be better, to make my drawing look correct, to make art and not draw. soon, my superfriends were looking more like people than  amorphous blobs of color and Robin shoes.                Mom would take me to contests around town where you could draw to win prizes. I cannot remember a contest that I was lower than third place. Once, I won a really cool toy. It was a sculture of fred Flintstone. You got a block of white plastic, kind of like soap. You chiseled at it to reveal fred. Then you painted it. This paid off in art school having a basic understanding of sculpting.
