I’m excellent at writing. I have a huge portfolio with hundreds of fashion write ups done over the years, but I’ve always wanted to act on another passion of mine…drawing. Yes, I love fashion illustrators of all kinds. Ruben Toledo is my favorite and I’ve always admired his talent to capture the essence of any fashion designers work through his unique interpretation. His work inspires so many artist, designers, and yes writers like myself. I’ve done a few drawings for my book The Quirky Bombshell Guide to Fashion Organization, so I’ve attempted to sketch in some form. This book The Creative License by Danny Gregory has really given me a boost of confidence to draw my own fashion illustrations. This book has cool creative drawings, but it also gives some great insight on developing your own style. He gives practical tips on drawing simple objects. What I love the most about this book is the fun tutorials and the freedom it gives to draw less than perfect. Maybe that’s why the subtitle for this book is “Giving yourself permission to be the artist you truly are”. Your toughest critic is yourself. I won’t let negativity thwart my drive to extend my talents beyond writing. Just say I/YOU CAN DO IT and IT can be done!
