If you haven't yet read this post by John Hendrix on finding your artistic voice, may I kindly suggest you do so immediately? After reading it last week, I sat down and made a list of 100 things that I like drawing. It's a terrific exercise and well-worth the time.
And I'll spare you the full set, but the abridged version includes:
- Onion Domes
- Creatures of indeterminate taxonomy
- Mystery, but not mayhem
- Plaited Hair
- Questionable sartorial choices
- Striped Socks
- New England Wildflowers
- Non-malevolent monsters
- Birch Trees
- Any and all fairy tales/folktales/stories-with-no-basis-in-reality-or-science
All of this begs the question, of course: what's on your list?
