New Year’s Resolutions – #9: Learn to draw

In an attempt to hold myself to my resolutions this year, I’m blogging them. You can read more of my resolutions here.

Learn to draw

It’s safe to say that I have drawing ability of a dead gnat. Which is a shame really, since being able to draw at more than a rudimentary level would allow me to storyboard my shoots. Part of the problem with being a visual artist is that trying to express an idea for an image invariably means describing that image in words. Which is pretty hard when the image exists solely in your head.

I don’t need to be an amazing artist with a pencil and paper, but being able to draw figures and faces that look reasonably human would be a vast improvement on where I am now.
