There has never been a "before drawing" period of my life. I've always loved drawing. Here's some of my early work. I loved drawing ballerinas, angels (or "angles"), pretty dresses and Disney princesses.
If I drew this in 1995, the year the Pocahontas movie came out, I would have been 9 years old.
I drew a lot of these "storytelling picher"s, although I doubt that this was actually #101. I don't think there was really a story here either; I just liked the idea of having multiple dresses to choose from. I still do. It's one of my favorite dilemmas.
