peace on paper

this i know is true
Spending many hours these days contemplating what's next. If there is one thing I'm certain of, it is that drawing must to be a part of it. It's my go-to-place in good times and bad. When I have a black sheet of paper and a pen in my hand I feel the most like myself...my mind quietens and I am free.

What gives you freedom?

I second and third the beauty of the sketch's simplicity...and the truth of how sketching or making art makes me feel like myself or even more than myself. Oh the possibilities...

Perhaps illustration is next? Your drawings are fresh and from what I observe in the graphic design world is a trend to use hand drawn material in designs.

Taking pictures, listening to music, watching korean dramas, not living with my parents, running, biking, swimming (in short triathlon), sometimes drawing.
