It's currently my hobby, as well as a few classes in my school career. The main problem is that I get good marks in both Art subjects (Art, English, Music), as well as academic subjects (Chemistry, Math - ew, I'm so good at that it hurts, Physics). I really don't know what I'm going to do in university; it'll probably be some sort of I-don't-want-to-sleep-ever double major, or else I'll be forced to make a decision, which I'll undoubtedly regret later, whichever path I choose. Waste of a mind, or waste of a hand? Ugh.

For now it's a hobby. I'll stick with that.

Drawing for me is a hobby but I wish it was a lifestyle.
I dont think I could ever stop drawing(even if its bad) ,for whatever odd reason it seems like I was meant to do it.
And if I hadn't found Flight I would probably still be freakishly depressed. :D

Don't knock academic subjects. The strangest things can make you a better artist (even math? Maybe not math.) Most of what I know about drawing came not from school but just from doing it (although school helped a bit).

I have the inability to know where to start making art my life. I also have the inability to do anything other then draw. I have all the time in the world seeing as I got laid off not too long ago for drawing too much at work and yes, that's the honest truth. How to make it in the world doing illo's and the like, I have no friggin' idea. I'd love to find out.

Art is the only thing I am.

I live for design and illustration since 2003, recently, I sign up in the local Arts School; its funny because I have more experience than my classmates, but Im learning new things... you always learning something new in school.

Not only at school, you will always learn things,

Drawing's just a hobby for me. I harbour a great love for the rendered image, but I do not pursue it myself. Right now I'm happy doodling in the margins, and admiring the works of those more daring and capable than I.
