To Show to Publish or Just to Draw

Sometimes you just need to get out of the house with your work to get a better look at it and where you want to take it next. The white walls of an exhibition hall can allow you to see your work differently, for better or worse. Even if the experience sends you back to the drawing board, you will have learned something and can go on from there.

Publishing your work is a thrill in itself. There's nothing like the printed page and that credit line underneath your image. Start with your local paper if you have landscape or wildlife sketches that might work as decorative spots, or if you have developed a cartoon style or have taken up caricatures of the locals.

All this diversion is fun, but try not to let yourself get diverted from the real business of seeing and drawing every day. It takes a long time to learn how to draw well, and, though you may have come a long way, there is still a long way to go. Trust that it is a good road, and take the time to go there.
