I think by drawing, so I'll draw or diagram everything from a piece of furniture to a stage gesture. I understand things best when they're in graphics, not words.
I was blown away by being able to color. Then I started to draw... bringing a blank white canvas to life was fascinating.
James De La Vega
I've been drawing as long as I can remember. I think all children draw as soon as they figure out the thumb and can grab crayons. The only difference with people like myself is that we never stopped drawing.
Take a relief. You draw it, you carve it out. Later you build it up from a flat surface. There is no other way to do a sculpture - you either add or you subtract.
There's no magic line between an application and an operating system that some bureaucrat in Washington should draw.
We draw our Presidents from the people. It is a wholesome thing for them to return to the people. I came from them. I wish to be one of them again.
Anything that does not draw us closer to God takes us away from Him.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I would sometimes sit in a crowded restaurant, and say, 'You know, I'm the only person in this restaurant who can't draw.'
I draw flowers every day and send them to my friends so they get fresh blooms every morning.
I like science and I love gym. Oh, and I like art, but I'm really bad at it. I'm just a terrible drawer. I can't draw a circle. Even with a ruler, I can't draw a straight line.
I learned to read very early so I could read the comics, which I then started to draw.
I subscribe to the myth that an artist's creativity comes from torment. Once that's fixed, what do you draw on?
I was always shouted at by my teacher because I would draw straight on the table in the school.
I know that some books and some writers, you can pretty much draw a square around it and say, 'Nobody under 40,' or 'Nobody under 25.' With my books, it always has been, and continues to be, spread right across the board, and I think the operative term is 'reader.'
I've created a vocabulary of different styles. I draw from many different ways to take a picture. Sometimes I go back to reportage, to journalism.
I did 13-something years of talking to wrestlers and promoters about why they did certain things and why they booked matches a certain way and what they were thinking and whether they were satisfied with the draw. And I got a lot of insight in the business.
In the '50s and '60s, the life of a gay man was a secret. Homosexuality was illegal, so you didn't draw attention to yourself.
That's what I've been trying to strive for - to draw a clear picture, to open up a new dimension.
Cartooning is for people who can't quite draw and can't quite write. You combine the two half-talents and come up with a career.
There is nothing wrong with going to bed with someone of your own sex. People should be very free with sex, they should draw the line at goats.
I've never been opposed to nudity. I've been opposed to nudity for box-office draw.
People, even independently minded people, do to an extent draw their impressions from what they are told, especially if they are told it incessantly by newspapers.
I don't like to write rhetorically or get on a soapbox. I try to make the stuff multi-layered, so that it always has a life outside its social context. I don't believe that you can tell people anything; you can only draw them in.
I also paint, draw and I'm into film and photography as well, and the same thing applies to all of them. You're presenting this material to the general public and hoping that they're going to 'get' what you're doing. Some don't, some do.
My issue in the past with nudity was that these scenes had been written solely for box office draw.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
