Why did you start doing art?

Most people seem to draw as kids, but then the desire drops off after some point. Did you draw consistently, or stop and pick it back up? How come?

I drew as a kid in elementary school. Didn't stop drawing really but I never really got too serious about it 'till I got older

I've been off and on with it since I was a wee tot!

I do it for the same reason I like to make music and exercise, because it's fun!

I never stopped drawing. I had nothing better to do.

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...

I always had an interest in art. I just enjoying making stuff in general.

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.

I have a similar sort of mentality. Hopefully by the time I croak I'll have produced something worthwhile and lasting!
