Pablo Picasso once said that painting is just another way of keeping a diary.. is it? Well I know I’m not a real painter, I simply love to draw.. with the development in technology I started to draw things digitally.. It’s quite a new thing for me.. I remember when I was in junior high school I drew things on paper and sometimes kept my drawings in a folder. Then, in high school I painted sorrow on a piece of paper and at that time, I didn’t have any intention to paint until I saw some painting tools on my little brother’s desk.. Then I quickly thought.. Let’s try them out! it was quite fun, even though I titled the painting "sorrow". Then I made another one which I calledvillage frontier. Another way of keeping a diary? not sure. As far as I know diary is a daily written record of usually personal experiences and observations. Until now I don’t remember making any drawings about my personal experiences (I will probably do it one day), I think of it simply as hobby, I draw based on my own imagination and it's not like when I'm sad I draw something that depicts my sadness. I'm really confused...I shouldn’t have thought about this stuff from the beginning, what a waste of time. By the way, I think it’s time to say goodbye to pencil and paper (which is a good thing, because I don't wanna waste trees only for my nonsense drawings) and say hi to pen tablet and adobe photoshop (or any other drawing softwares out there..).
