I spent 12-14 hours this weekend working on two holiday art exchanges, one of which is staying secret until the big reveal, but the other of which is now posted and is actually getting comments!
Yeah, yeah, I realize I’m being a total dork about this, but you have to understand: I work hard at writing well, but I have some natural talent to build on there. I have NO natural talent for drawing. There is not a single aspect of art that is intuitive or comes easily to me. It’s the one thing in my life that I’ve persisted at despite not being any good at it, so having someone praise my art is really heavy for me.
And now, back to freaking out about grad school applications!
