Lots of Left-Handed Cats
I have a confession to make... I have become obsessed with drawing with my non-dominant hand. It started out simply enough - a few left handed cats drawn in bed ( Curious? Check out this book!) Then it was left handed cats in the waiting room at the doctor's office, left handed cats in the car (not while driving, of course)... It seems like any time I have an extra minute I doodle a quick cat with my left hand.
There is something very liberating about drawing with your non-dominant hand. The pressure is off... No one expects you to be able to create something great with the hand you don't normally use. It's freeing and fun! The bonus: I think the cats I've drawn with my left hand actually have a lot of character. I'm thinking of turning a couple of them into larger art pieces.
If you'd like to learn more about where my new found obsession came from, be sure to check out Carla Sonheim's book Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artists...
