Drawing as Self Discovery Project

Drawing as Self Discovery Project - student project

I've just finished this class and I had SO much fun! Thank you so much Mari for the inspiration. <3

I'd like to share one of the illustrations I made while taking this class.

This was my favorite exercise. The title of Mari's drawing was originally "Anatomy of the woman I want to be in approx 10 years." But rather than focusing on the future, I decided to make it about the present. So I made one small change to my drawing's title.

I realized that we can be whatever we want to be Now. No need to wait to be beautiful, smart, kind, artist, fashionable, etc. I love who I am now and who I am becoming. And I hope ten years from now I continue to write, draw, read books, and be even more in love with life.

 I also shared this and other illustrations on my Instagram account. I'll continue to draw as self-discovery. If you'd like to follow me, you can find me as @jessaraus :)
