I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I used to draw. It was in another life of mine (not really… high school and after). It’s all I did creatively. Maybe I painted too. I don’t really remember. I do know that I always had a sketchbook on me and was usually drawing some crazy monster with rings coming out of its head and googly eyes.
Then I had kids. The drawing stopped. I need to be able to concentrate when I’m drawing. I wasn’t able to do that, and the drawing stopped. Lucky for you all, I decided to crochet horribly, ugly hats… which led my life down this path.
My kids are bigger now. I can think a little better. They can amuse themselves for short (or long sometimes) periods of time. Sometimes I sketch. I AM SOOOOOO RUSTY. It’s good though. It feels good. I kind of can’t wait to crochet up some of these pictures into dolls.
Some of these drawings will never turn into dolls, because of just the logistics that may come up with crocheting and drawing working together… or they’re just “meh”. Some will definitely become dolls.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I have quite the list of dolls and other patterns/dolls to get through, so I just thought I’d tease you with some drawings I have been doing lately in this particular post. In the next Drawing for Amigurumi Doll Design post, we’ll chat about how to actually go about doing this sort of drawing and how to apply it to your amigurumi doll design. Woot!
What have you rediscovered after taking a break? Is it the same? Do you feel the same? I’m a little nosey, so I want to know these things.
