. . .got a comment about my sketch in the Photo-etching post – started thinking about when I started drawing: must have been when I was 5 or 6 years old. I used to draw comic panels of fighter planes (propeller-type) involved in dog-fights – moved on to figure “study” a bit later, like the 4th or 5th Grade.

So drawing is like “no-mind“, “no-thought” – it just flows, sometimes smooth and easy, other times . . . nothing.
