Drawing as a Hobby

Updated on June 12, 2010

 Drawing can be fun and it does not cost a lot. It is a nice hobby. I remember when I grew up, I loved to draw! My mom would even encourage me to design her dresses. Back in Hong Kong, it was very common that people had their cloths tailored. It was almost as much as you bought the ready made in the store.

You don't have to be an artist to draw or even to display your art work. That is what makes every piece unique! So, get your pencil, paint brush, whatever you have around the house and start drawing! Have fun. What are you waiting for?

      I love your work, especialy the Marilyn Monroe and I personaly don't see it as a doodle, it realy does reach me in a way that not many works can, it has a ceertan antiquity and stability about it .

      Thank you

      Drawing is a way of expressing yourself, just like writing. I am glad we both enjoy that. I have not done that for a long time either. Thanks, prasetio30.

      Thank you, RedElf. I am flattered. I wish I am better. I feel like I know how to do a lot of stuff but it is always just okay but not great. Thanks for encouraging me. I needed it:)

      This is not doodling - doodling is what people do on the backs of napkins! Ralwus is right, you have real talent! Re-think your drawing ability, my friend ;) Welcome to Hub Pages - nice to meet you.

      I can only say that I love drawing. I took some classes before but I think of my work as doodling. Thanks for the compliment.
