"I can't draw" — "I'm not creative"

That used to be me until October 2021. With the push from some of my friends I decided to try. Between then and July 2022 I created what you will find below in 264 hours.

Is it going to knock your socks off? Probably not, but it was a great exercise in remembering how to be a beginner again.

I am shifting my focus back to programming and this blog, but I'll be back to illustration at some point in my future.

Shoutout to Stephen Ong and my wife for their advice and feedback.
