Joy of Making

John Hendrix (an amazing storyteller and illustrator) wrote a post about finding your voice as an artist and how it relates directly to enjoying what you make. He wrote, "it is so easy during art school and professional training to forget that you started drawing because you enjoyed it." John then suggested creating a list of a 100 things you enjoy drawing. "Pin it up in your studio," he explained, "make a habit of inserting these subjects into your drawings and, even better, into your illustration solutions. Learning to solve a project in a world that you enjoy is a huge part of finding your voice. The reason why is so simple it almost escapes notice: When we make things we enjoy, our work gets better." I took his suggestion and created my own list of 100 things I enjoy drawing.

Take a look and be sure to check out John's amazing work! I love his online comic, The Adventures of the Holy Ghost.
