How to draw

  • Always carry a pen.
  • The best way is to be still.
  • Everyone can do it, except those people who say they can't.
  • Forget your eraser. There are no mistakes. Only lessons.
  • Don't do it for fame. Do it for you.
  • Don't seek beauty. See it.
  • Everyone's perfect pen is different.
  • Learn from others. But don't be an imitation.
  • No books, no teachers, no system, can teach you as much as practice.
  • If you don't like a drawing, turn the page and do another.
  • Study how kids do it.
  • A forest is just a lot of trees. A tree is just a lot of leaves. And you know how to draw a leaf.
  • Value everything you make.
  • Give your drawings away.
  • If you can do it perfectly, it’s boring.
  • It's all about the Now. That's why it's called a drawing, not a drawn.
  • Know when to stop.
