You don’t have to be ambidextrous to be an artist.
(But you probably already knew that.)
When I was about 10, I tried for months to train myself to become ambidextrous.
Why? Because my bus driver told me that ambidextrous people are artists and I wanted so badly to be an artist. Side note: elementary school bus drivers have quite an impact on a kid’s life, but that’s not my point here. Much as I tried and willed it to happen, my left hand just did not perform (even when I dislocated a finger on my right hand and could only use my left for months), so I eventually gave up on the idea.
Since then, I have learned two important things:
One: we’re all creatives, we just express that creativity in different ways. So, even though I couldn’t draw like my classmate, Clint (my standard for what defined a true artist at the time), I am still an artist.
And two: Don’t copy another artist and try to be something you are not. It took a long time, but I finally figured out that working in layers, trace paper and Illustrator suits me quite well.
So keep up the good work my artist friend!
