While everyone else in school was listening to the teacher we were the kids sitting in the back of the classroom quietly drawing pictures of, well, mostly death and destruction. I was especially fond of drawing ninjas.
It seems to be different now, if you are that kind of kid it’s likely your talent will be encouraged rather than punished – I was hit repeatedly over the knuckles for being creative by one of my primary school teachers.
The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed — it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.” – Ken Robinson
But there’s something to be said for perseverance right? I mean it turns out that if you just continue to draw in the face of opposition eventually someone will pay you to do it. My first professional illustration work was for Billabong… and I loved it.
I still love it. Whether it’s drawings of birds, or a farmhouse scene. If it’s a picture of a business man with a reindeer head or heck – even if it’s still ninjas… I am completely in my element when I’m putting pen to paper to make marks that tell a story.
Hire me… go on, I love it when people pay me to have fun!
