I love to draw from observation. I am a critical person by nature and when I am stuck inside my head, the only way to get out is to pick up a pencil and draw straight onto paper. All there is to do is watch and let your pencil follow the movement of your eyes. To me, this is the best way to connect to the story I want to tell. That is why most of my creative processes start out with research and observation. I tend to dwell on my stories, until I find a way to tell them.
