Thanks to all the wonderful comments over the weekend. It sounds like many of you had a bad experience once with an art teacher and have had that stick in your mind ever since.
No guarantees mind you, but this helps give me a direction I can gather more information on. Online classes are tricky to set up as flexibly as I would need to with my travel schedule, but I will see what I can do.
Meanwhile, I will try to post more beginner drawing things that might inspire you to doodle. If you can write letters, then you can draw pictures! Your drawings don't have to be big or complex, they can be small and meaningless. What matters is that YOU did it, and YOU are excited to get better :) School is not the only place to learn things, so keep trying, even if you haven't taken a class.
Remember, practice makes perfect. Recently I cleaned out my attic and found 8 large boxes of pictures that I've drawn, mostly in the last 13 years. Never give up! Once you've drawn 8 boxes worth of images then you can decide whether you're good or not.
Ok, I'll be posting tutorials and my regular stuff later this week. Those of you who won will be notified via e-mail. Thanks again for leaving your comments!
