Just Killing Time
I don't exactly have a reason to be killing time today. I'm sick and I have no real motivation to do any actual work or sewing. I have a full shift tomorrow, for the first time in weeks, and I need to get better for it. I should spend the whole day napping, but on sick days like today I remain wide awake and not willing to stray far from my bed. My options are; watch things on my computer, read, or draw. Today I opted to draw because I haven't done it in a while.
I like to draw all kinds of different stuff but the one thing I particularly enjoy drawing is fashion. It's just another creative outlet for me. It combines my love of fashion with my passion for creating art. I often draw the things I plan on sewing, or am sewing at that time, to help visualize the final outcome or perhaps how I might wear that particular garment. It's a wonderful pastime and although I've long since abandoned my career as an artist, I find myself coming back to this hobby again and again. Even when I'm watching tv or talking to someone, I'll have my sketchbook at hand because I need to get an idea down on paper. I have books and books full of comic style doodles and fashion drawings, so many of which I had hoped to publish or create some day. I may share some more drawings on this blog in the future.
Do you draw? Fashion or otherwise? Even if you don't think you're a stellar artist, if you sew, I think drawing fashion could be a fun thing for you try out. :)
I'm off to sleep again! Best wishes~
