Talent Show Essay: Drawing
Throughout my life I have always loved drawing, spending almost as much time as I could drawing landscapes, creatures, and inventions. When I was a baby I would scribble all over the restaurant menus, when I was kid I would steal paper from the printer and sketch out machines and skateboards, and now in my teen years I made up large landscapes or my own made up worlds. I feel like I can speak through my artwork by making what I want when I have any sort of writing utensil and piece of paper. I have donated a large part of my life to artwork and feel great that I will be able to share my artwork with my peers.
Although many people do not enjoy artwork as much as I do I believe that we should all experience it, so that we may open our eyes up and see what other people have created simply because they wanted to, not because they had to. I never disliked art so it is easy for me to draw and express myself in one of the purest ways possible. It’s almost as if I am able to talk to others and reach out through my art, appealing to many or maybe not. It does not matter to me whether someone likes my work or not because it is my own work that I love to make. Although many artist go out and display their work for all to see I personally like to keep it myself and for family/friends, that way it seems as if I’m making my art on a more personal level.
On this personal level I like to draw calm/peaceful things, as drawing things as warfare, violence, or even death do not seem to be appealing as in no one wants to see them. I know that many bad things are happening around the world that are horribly corrupt and that people need help, but because people do so well already making these things popular through media etc. I feel that there is a need for good artwork as well to balance out the bad. I love drawing peaceful things because they reminds me of what can be, or what already is, they remind me of past dreams, and give me beautiful dreams....
