Back to Basics

I was thinking of ways to improve my skills on paper cutting. I think the biggest challenge and setback I've always faced was not knowing how to draw. Whenever I tried, I got so frustrated that they weren't coming out how I imagined that I would give up. Sure I can draw lines and put them together to look cool but anything real and not abstract, I can't do it for the life of me. So I thought, the best way to improve is to finally take the plunge and learn to draw. I think I'm going to take it slow. Just draw something once a day. Or maybe start with a basic class. Either way I have to start somewhere. One way I like to practice drawing is by tracing over pictures. And it has such a neat effect.
