My longest running hobbie. Well let’s see…
The one hobbie that I’ve had the longest would be drawing. I’ve been doing it for a very long time. I’m not sure when I started drawing. Not sure if you’d count coloring in coloring books at a young age.
I enjoy drawing and designing so naturally going to school for Graphic Design was more or less a DUH! I enjoy designing and creating different things that my mind comes up with.
With drawing or designing you can create so many different things which is one of the things I love. I enjoy designing logos and have done a few so far for friends and family. Seeing their faces light up when I see that they like the design makes me happy.
Drawing a design for a tattoo even makes me happy. I wear my own artwork proudly and it makes me smile when someone compliments it. I have also recently designed a tattoo for a friend that I didn’t know about. I had written a letter and on it I drew something completely random. Then I was told they wanted to get it as a tattoo. For someone else to want to get my design, that was so awesome. I’ve never had anyone request a design for me to wear for the rest of their life.
I find that when I draw that I can lose myself in it. Yes I have OCD but that helps. Every drawing I create I want it to look good. There have been times that I’ve drawn something and one line doesn’t make me happy so I’ll scrap the whole thing. Then there are the ones that you look at it and it’s a minimal design and you know it doesn’t need anything else. Adding to it would take away from it.
To sum it all up though, drawing has been my longest running hobbie. I don’t ever think I’ll give it up. I enjoy it to much.
