I have always drawn since I was a kid, I thought for a long time how I was going to be the next XYZ and would be heavily influenced by the artists I liked, Ralph Steadman, Robert Crumb and so on. Then life took a funny turn slapping me in the face and said "hey that's just your ego talking kid"
Nowadays I meditate and am quite spiritual, but I still draw- the difference being their is no self fulfilling goal any more. I just draw for the sake of drawing again. Tends to be stuff with watercolour or pen and ink.
