Drawing “Itch”

May 31, 2010

Six-year old John Rey comes to the house almost everyday being the grandson of Manang, our helper. He likes to play with water. But it was only today that I saw him quietly sitting and seemingly looking far out beyond. So suddenly, the drawing itch hit me. I felt the urge to sketch and so I asked if I could draw him. He smiled and nodded. I quickly got a piece of paper and a pencil. I used to draw quite adeptly but when I delved into filmmaking I stopped drawing. Without practice for decades, my fingers totally “disabled” me from being a fairly good artist that I once be. Well, that was how I gauged  myself then…

My lines were not sure I felt quite an amateur. But I was happy to do something else while resting from some editing work that I am currently doing. And though I am feeling somewhat embarrassed with how I drew, I shall have the guts to show you still my output this afternoon. I hope the drawing itch comes more often. Because no matter how my sketch looks like, there is still that sense of joy for having done the art work.
