Today I picked up the pencil, sat down, and started drawing. It felt a bit strange... No wonder considering it's been about seven years since the last time I even held a pencil in my hand.
I was so worried that I would be beyond rusty, but as I kept drawing, the pencil started to feel more comfortable in my hand, and it all started making sense again. It felt natural. It's a bit like riding a bike.
I've been absolutely drained of everything called inspiration. Literally completely dried up, nothing left at all. Horrible feeling to an artist... really horrible.
As you know, I'm really fond heavy duty strength workouts, empowered women, so my thoughts went to women in the world of fitness.
Seeing all the amazing progress people within fitness make, how they take control over their bodies, mold it to it's peek, the amazing willpower and skill it takes to get to their level - I find that inspiring. To be able to capture that with a camera lens, with words, or with a pencil - to me it is just one more way of visualizing and sharing wonderful inspiration of what humans can do if they put their mind to it.
So here it is, my first drawing in years, inspired by the field of fitness! I hope, and cross all my fingers, that it will keep me inspired for a long time to come.
Now I'm dying of curiosity to hear what you think! So how's that for a seven year drought?
Hope you like it!
I'm still trying to process it all...
Have a good one!
