My sister started her art foundation course at Epsom this week. And I am insanely jealous. Every now and then I think I must start drawing and painting again, the problem is I lack motivation. Yet if I have a project to work on, I am forced to do work and I really enjoy it. I would love to use art in my work, but it's one of those things where you need practice, experience, a portfolio... somehow I don't think doodles I create in my spare time would really count.

I keep considering doing an art course. The only problem is I have this stubborn thing in my head where I think that not getting a job and paying out for yet another course is a stupid thing to do, and that I should concentrate on getting a job. Even though I know that there are plenty of people out there who do second degress and so on.

What if I worked for a while...then got the money...then started an art course. But by then I might be 24/25ish... is that too late to be starting a course?

Gah. I bet it's one of those things where I don't build up the courage to just do it and then I regret it when it's too late. And what could I do with art and languages together. Hmm.

I really really really want to work on figure drawing. I want to practice a horrendous amount and actually start to be able to draw figures properly, without it being an observational drawing. I want to be able to make up characters in my head and put them to paper.

Meeeeeep.
