Jealous

I know how to write, and that’s a good skill to have.

But–I’ve always wished I could draw.

Sure, I can draw a flamingo, and I can write tempera paint a sign with the best of them. But, that’s really the extent of it.

The thing is, I am SO jealous of people have that talent. (For the record, I know they still have to practice, but I don’t think you can LEARN to draw if the base skill isn’t there.)

I have a friend who can draw–I mean REALLY draw. I watch her across the table when she’s doodling, and it’s fascinating to me the way she draws each part of a picture and brings it all together as a whole.

Today her wedding invitations came in the mail.

invites Jealous

Yeah–she drew them herself.

Grr. I love/hate her SO much!

  2. Those are awesome! While I love writing and wouldn’t give up the talent for it for anything, I’d love to be able to draw or paint too!

    Oh, man, tell me about it. I write PBs (as well as MG and YA), and I SO wish that I could illustrate them, too! I just have this niggling feeling that it would make it easier to break into the market, you know?

    And those are the coolest wedding invitations in the universe. I love that they inspired your daughter! LOL!

    Those are too awesome! I love unique wedding invites.

    I would also adore the ability to draw something that looks like the product of an actual adult, but sadly, it’s not happening.

    @@jmartinlibrary, for reals! I thought I was going to get to go without the kid, but she’s been dressed as a superhero since we got the invites… so that’s probably out. :)
