This Left Me in Awe

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”

Frederick Douglass

As usual, quotes are a must for me. I have something to share with you all. Before starting a work, I am the one who thinks deeply, I mean very deeply and if I decide to do something, I try to give my best.

While I was working on this project, I failed myself as a perfectionist. I finished my work so early and realized that this is not it. This just won’t work. I started an all new work two days ago and spent more than 12 hours on this. Imagine a baby duck waggling to swim in water… that’s how I was struggling. The morale from this experience is nothing is perfect and sometimes it is hard to accept this.

About the illustration: I drew on the original photo that I took while I was on a trip to Ngapali, six months ago. This is my first time that drawing on phone so I tried my best. If you want to know some details about me, check out my infographics and feel free to talk to me anytime.

Everything has been going well so far despite chicken pox and missing out on my academics but I have coped pretty well. The sophomore year is about to end with our AP exam coming right up and this is for the younger secondary students: Work early, you’ll never regret it. 

Week Without Walls really broadened our minds and brought us all together. I thank the faculty and my mother for giving me the opportunity and supporting me to go on this trip.

For second trimester, we focused on animation, digital illustrations and sound editing. ICT class has always been interesting and it never fails to excite me. I expect to work more on video editing and digital art. To make things better, coding would be a great idea. I would also like to thank Ms. Kristen for being so understanding and helpful in all teaching aspects.

I know, I look older here. Anyway, thanks a lot for going through till the end.

  1. Hey Edward… you are getting better and better with each drawing. I especially like your second try as it is simple, yet crisp, with nice line-work and good color choices. Nice attention to detail!
