I m just some guy

·2 mins

I’m just some guy.

A son. A husband. A father. A sinner saved by the grace of God.

That’s the important stuff.

Other than that, like I said, I’m just some guy.

Granted, I’m a guy of varied interests and competencies. Every few years, I set for myself a year-long creative goal where I pursue, as completely as I am able becoming comfortable with a creative skill which has been itching in the back of my mind for any number of years.

The years of 2013-2014 saw me working on poetry. During this time I found that I gained real joy from epigrammatic, 4-line poetry. I wrote lots of really bad poetry, and some that had something in them that I like.

In 2014-2015 I worked on my drawing skills. Looking back at this time period there are precious few drawings that I find satisfactory. If I’m honest with myself, I’m not happy with any of them, but of those I’ve decided to post here, there is always something,…a curve,…a squiggle,…some line or crosshatch, that really captures the essence of the subject in some way that surprises me.

Lately, I’ve become interested in the idea of making movies. I’m sure I’ll have many failed attempts at this endeavor as well, however, when all is said and done, perhaps there will be something in a few of them that I find worthwhile to share.
