That special spark, and drawing puns

Everyone probably has something that they thoroughly enjoy doing. Maybe my passion is drawing? I get seriously pumped up when I'm drawing something I like. I find that the hours slip by with a pencil in my hand, and I reach a peaceful calm state whilst I swipe my hand in all directions. Also, it's really fun to duplicate shapes and textures. Once in a while I actually get the result I wanted to begin with!

So, for those of you that would like to see what my significant other looks like, I have drawn a picture and attached it below the paragraph that you're reading. Yep, that's the one! But finish this paragraph before you get too drawn in, don't skip ahead! She just might hate me for posting this so publicly, or she'll love the show of devotion. It's a bit of a coin toss right now, search comments for the final verdict... (Jess, please post a comment. Otherwise I'll just look silly)

Your eyes drew me in the most Jess, so I drew them in to return the favour.
I'm really very proud of it. It's the first time that I've drawn from real life and I'd like to develop my skills far enough to fix all the problems I'm finding in this drawing. I won't pin-point them to you, you can make your own reviews of my talents (or lack there of if you're that pessimistic, just don't tell me you think so. I choose to believe that I'm more than okay at this ;) Negative comments will be ignored and/or removed).

Thank you for feeding my desire by reading yet another blog post of mine, all these page views are great ego builders! For your efforts I have rewarded you by attaching the original image. The source of my inspiration, my beautiful muse, Jess:
The original masterpiece, photographed by a pro. Sorry for cutting your face in half  Kelly!

Until next time, brave readers (Be careful of the spidersharks during your web surfing)
Yours in writing


  1. You are amazing Ben! Keep it up with the drawing!!! I love how devoted you are! Bear in mind I don’t really like being drawn. It makes me feel shy and extremely insecure. So its sweet that you are talking about me but please don’t draw me if you can help it. Or just don’t show me or post them on your blog. I don’t want to stop you from doing something that you really enjoy. Great post babe! I’m soooo proud of you.

    1. Thank you for your support even though I can see you're nervous about it. I will keep drawing! :P

  2. My super duper amazingly talented brother! If you happen to feel like drawing your little sister, I happen to have heard that she would be super stoked about that. ;) Also would love to see you do a self portrait. And maybe a drawing of Ninja. And Cleopatra.

    1. Well done Ben!! You are most definitely talented, that is very plain to see. Next time you two stay over (please let it be soon) I will give you great practice exercises. So proud of you!!!!
