I can’t remember a time before I drew pictures. I copied and created my own comic books in elementary school. Sketching was as natural for me as drinking water.
In college, a friend gave me an early copy of a new piece of software called Photoshop and a new obsession emerged. I stayed up late into the night not drinking at bars like my peers but fiddling with images in photoshop. I could now manipulate images in ways I never could before with a pen and pencil.
I continue to sketch at times today, but have completely dropped the “fiddling with photoshop” hobby. I’ve replaced it with a “fiddling with Lightroom” hobby, you can see that here.
