How long have you been drawing or creating art?
For the past 6 years. Since I was a pupil of standard three.
I was interested in drawing when my fell said “Your drawings are magnificent”
I have never been exposed to any drawing competitions, but my fellow class used to award
me with a little gift like pen, etc when I helped them to draw pictures.
I feel good when it comes to drawing, especially subjects that involve drawing.
I like drawing pictures involving humans and cars.
Drawing in my future employment would be my dream.
