Recently it was my father's birthday, and I pondered what to give him. I thought, 'Hey, I have this old art calendar! Look, there are some metallic markers!' and ta- da! The big dino thing is one of my favorite characters that I draw. I have improved so much over the years in my drawing. I was horrified to find one of my old sketchbooks from second grade. No, horrified doesn't cover the way I felt. I was properly mortified. My darling father made comments like 'But I think that that looks cute!', 'That just shows how much you've improved!' and other parenting words designed to make me feel better about my formerly terrible drawing 'skills'. So over the course of the next few weeks, I will show you the rest of my fathers present, as well as some other improved drawings. Stay tuned.
