I took a semester of calligraphy in high school, I started doing it in elementary as a reward for getting my work done in class, I’m the person who practiced my Ds because I didn’t like how I was writing them until they got better, yet the idea of actually doing calligraphy now is for some reason really intimidating.
Jason and I are planning big this year and working on pulling those big ideas off. I’ve never been somebody who’s confident in my skills, and still are very “shy,” for lack of a better term, about showing off or standing tall about what I do. So I’m trying to live the mantra above and I figured that doing it can be followed by believing it… Or that’s what I’m going to keep telling myself until maybe sometime in the future I do believe that.
It’s spring break here this week and I decided to take the week off of drawing or doing anything stressful on my hand, to give it a rest, and I can feel a big difference in it today. So I think after I get some tasks done (assuming the kids let me), I’ll work on some drawing. After I do some stretches and exercises of those new balls that is.
I got asked on Instagram by Nate Burleson, who now plays for the Browns but was one of my most favorite players on the Lions, to draw him and that’s a perfect reason bust out my pencil. I may or may not have squealed very loudly when I checked Instagram this morning. Super crazy awesome!
Alright, I’ll see you guys next week, when everything is back on a normal schedule around here. Enjoy your weekend!
