The day arrived where I had to make a choice to follow a path of security or take a risk and do what I love.
It was a troubling decision, but I almost felt like I had to choose the scarier road. My regular job was causing me anxiety, and tensions were starting to rise all across the board. Without going into unpleasantries, I decided to take the leap into the unknown.
Over the holidays I received a generous amount of Amazon.com gift cards from my mother and my place of work, so I used every single one of them to purchase pencil sets and books. I was excited to start devoting as much time to drawing as I could.
