I’ve never been accused of being a sketch artist or good at drawing but I am more of a “doodler.”

My first attempt at comic book sketches was titled “Snake Eyes” that followed an ordinary snake fixed with two dice for eyeballs. The series probably didn’t make it past issue #2. I tried recreating simple comics like “The Far Side” or “Bloom County” but I just don’t have that talent. I never had the patience or the time to practice. Not when playing outside was available.

Alas, my drawing skills have not evolved from the second grade but I do find myself having a little more patience. I appreciate the therapeutic process and less on the end result that only a select few may or may not see.

I cannot be good at everything and that’s okay. For a hobby, I think doodling is just fine.
