As a young boy I often found drawing to be a much more natural way for me to express myself than writing and, even at times, talking. Back then I had no notion that it was what some grown-ups call "a skill"... I just figured everybody drew in order to express themselves properly. Nothing really special, you know?
Somehow, now fully aware of the whole "skill" deal, I find myself sitting pretty much in the same place as then.
Drawing is the way.
