I took a hiatus from drawing for a couple months to improve my writing. Drawing had become very frustrating for me because I kept sketching the same things over and over again. Artists like my buddy, Yon, enjoy carefree sketching. I on the other hand, like to have a goal in mind.
While writing a short story based on a dream I'd had years ago, the imagery became so visceral and tactile that I couldn't help but pick up a pencil. I can't tell you how beautiful it is to imagine something, write it down, then be able to draw it. It's like living a dream three times in a row, and each time it becomes more real.
Do yourself a favor: hug a fairy, tell a story.
