I’d like to introduce a new companion to the Signalnoise blog, a little something I’m calling Piles of Paper.
I’ve said many times that I’ve been drawing my whole life, and I was fortunate enough to have parents who held onto art relics from my childhood, or had the common sense myself to file away my drawings into some big folders to save them. Well, it’s time those folders were opened.
Piles of Paper will feature scans of my childhood drawings, some from as far back as 1982. Some characters of my own, and others you may recognize. I won’t be holding anything back so there will be plenty of laughs. So lets laugh together and maybe share some memories. We all gotta start somewhere, right? Staying in drawing on Friday nights when most normal kids were out causing trouble. That was me. That’s where I started. Wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Swing over to the Piles of Paper Tumblr to check it out.
Awesome, you are such an open and honest guy James. It’s nice to see where you started.
Using Tumblr in this way is genius, I’m mad I didn’t think of it first! ;) Aside from being amusing I think this can be very useful for those afraid to hit paper with pencil before going to the computer. It’s nice to see where you came from and how you grew as an artist. Being able to draw isn’t something you’re born with, it’s something you develop over time. “I can’t draw” really means, “I haven’t put the time in.”
