I'm an English Major. The images and symbolism in language appeal to me and I often think of the sketches I do in terms of literary description. Due to this, I often create in my head at least...not a story, but a short little vignette. Sometimes the image for the sketch comes first and sometimes the vignette simply demands I do a sketch. Songs or myths are occasionally at the root of my sketches, other times dreams, but mostly they just sort of take shape of their own accord. I hope with the more I sketch the better I'll become and perhaps one day I can illustrate novels or such. However, I'm still pretty far from that.
