Hello my name is Mark I am from Canada. I am currently a university student studying general things like english and geography...but I am also in a couple art courses. My goal is to eventually go to a school where I can study art full time.
When I was younger I was always drawing and wanted to work as a comic artist or cartoonist. Up until age 14 I drew religiously and then one day I just stopped drawing.
I am now 28 and took up the pencil two years ago. It started as a curiosity of how far my skills had deteriorated but I found after the first few months of painfully bad drawing I got pretty decent at it. I try not to think where I would be if I kept at it since I was 14 and try to look at what I can learn NOW.
This sketchbook will give me the avenue to chart my progress and to get feedback ( I look forward to feedback because there are some great people on this site) It should also motivate me to do bigger and better pieces.
