Isn’t he cute?
I must admit: I am rather a cat person than a dog person. But the moment I saw this dog in my tv journal I knew that I had to draw it. It sort of talked to me: “Draw me!” It touched something in my inner artist. And the thing is that every time I follow those calls the result is satisfying.
That’s the big difference to art in school: You had to draw and paint something whether you had an inner connection with the item / subject or not. Of course it might have made sense–but there was no feeling in it from my side, and most of the results were not very satisfying and even discouraging.
