Even when I was in kindergarten, I was writing and illustrating little stories during recess or at daycare. It's just something that's always been in me... I don't have as much time for art lately because college eats my life, but I'm getting back into it, and it's horribly refreshing.
We used to have these things in my elementary school we called "Published Books" where we would write small stories, do illustrations, and then have the teacher coil-bind them. They were very exciting!
Ah, yes! My middle school did writing and art anthologies, and they accepted pretty much everything... I submitted to two of them, and I think that I had over ten poems in one of them, ahaha. What can I say; I was ambitious...
when i was a child, that was my past time, it was my first love, i remember when i was in grade school, i represent my district school to compete in painting/drawing....i paint until college time, but when i was begin to work, painting faded coz of busy life...suddenly, my sister gave me a gift acrylic paint & watercolor last 2010, i was not using it for almost to years, 2 weeks ago, my wife want to buy wall decor(paintings) in a shopping mall, its so expensive!!!.... i told to my wife, i can do that for you, she didnt know i was painting..hahaha, last weekend, im looking the acrylic paint the gift of my sister, and i begin to paint again, now im done to my first piece, my wife is so happy....

I simply do not know because it was so long ago. I was barely able to hold the pen but decades later I still like to draw (do "art"). I am not a professional and I may not be even good but I hope to do art when I retire and until I die and I hope that by then I'll be good.
