Right Hand Drawings (that's left hand for 90% of y'all)

Here's something amusing. (and sorry it's nothing new, to those people who have followed my old blog). a few years back I was teaching english in a foreign country, and I had a bad scooter accident, by no uncoordination or fault of my own. (I was hit off the road by a car that ran a red light). It was a good thing at the time, because it made come back home, but physically it was a painful thing, amongst the usual accident cuts and bruises, my left arm was broken badly. and so after the second operation, these were some doodles I did for fun with my right hand, while I couldn't use my left arm. I'm left handed if you hadn't figured. I thought these drawings were poor at the time, but looking back at it now, these drawings really aren't bad at all. they're quite funny.



I encourage everyone who reads this, to try it out for fun. if you do, please let me know! or if you're going to use my idea for a drawing crawl, please link my blog to it!

I once interviewed an elderly man for my honours thesis. He was an artist and he found that the paintings he produced with his right hand were completely different to the ones he produced with his left (not in quality, but in concept and design). He felt as though he had an alter ego that could be creatively let loose when he used his non-preferred hand. It was awesome to see the difference. You would've sworn the paintings were by two completely different artists.

I've taken your advice and tried drawing a page with my left hand. The pictures are really goofy and I might post them at my blog one day soon.
