I was never especially interested in art other than it being a required class in school. Once I became more invested in series, characters, and the stories of others, however, I was inspired to show my appreciation for them through art. I only took drawing seriously once middle school had started, but ever since then I have spent almost all of my free time sketching and admiring the works of others. I am lucky to live in a time where social media allows artists from all around the globe to share their pieces and inspirations, and it makes my day to open an app and see so many amazing artworks not only from friends, but from creators whom I might never even meet.
