Do you ever feel like the porcupine in a warm and fuzzy world? Me too 😉
I read in a biography of Walter Anderson, the Mississippi Gulf Coast artist/painter, that his mother required he and his siblings to spend some time every day drawing and writing. He seemed to credit that experience with keeping his vision clear — or at least keeping it truly his. When I talk to my 6-year-old about his school day in the afternoons, I find that he does the same. And I’m constantly amazed at how vibrant his imagination is at this stage in his life. Since an imagination is something that shouldn’t be wasted, I thought I would give it a try — digital age style.
I’m experimenting with my iPad Sketchbook Pro app, which could become a habit.
