    Sometimes I just wanted to take a picture of my mind; a precious moment, a feeling or a dream. I discovered that I didn’t need a science fiction machine to make this possible, just a pen and paper.

    LOSE THE FEAR OF DRAWING

    by Saskia Keultjes

    MY FIRST DRAWINGS

    Since I could hold a pen, I’ve drawn always and everywhere. Sometimes my mother had to check on me in my room to see if I was still alive, because like many kids, I was totally engrossed in my colorful world (containing princesses, knights and dragons mostly).

    In school I doodled on math sheets,folders, notebooks, school desks, & restroom walls. Even my leather pencil case was doodled on. Illustrating on my learning materials rewarded me with bad marks for diligence and order.

    The art classes at Gymnasium (a prestigious German high school) gave me the coup de grace, discouraging me from ever drawing again. I thought I couldn’t draw, because I always drew differently from the rest of the classfrom my perspective and imagination.

    It started when I had to draw characters for a Flash Animation class in art school two years ago. I had to lose my fear of failing to create a nice character for a little flash game. I overcame my fear and I’m now able to tell stories, experiment, express my feelings and thoughts visually. When I realised that I drew everyday as much as I could, I realised that I wanted to be an illustrator, to finally do what I love fulltime.

    I get a lot of questions and messages about this topic, so I know there are some people who feel the same way, and might be interested in reading this. That is why I decided to write about how I lost the fear of drawing.

    DRAWING IS THINKING

    Sometimes I just wanted to take a picture of my mind; a precious moment, a feeling or a dream. I discovered that I didn’t need a science fiction machine to make this possible, just a pen and paper.

    Something to inspire: Imagine your grandmother saying this:

    “You can draw well!”

    I’m not as excited about technical ability as much as I am about drawings which I can develop an emotional connection with. To me, a “good drawing” is more than a pretty picture. It is visual thinking. An exciting drawing is: imperfect, reflective, brimming full of ideas, makes me think, and holds my attention for more than 2 seconds.
