It all begin with a scribble.
One day while I was in 4th grade I went to art class and on the table in front of each student was a piece of paper with a single scribbled line drawn. Our art teacher said "make that into whatever you want." I almost couldn't believe it - surely this wasn't a real class I thought - this will be too much fun. But it was, and so I immediately took some of the colored pencils on the table and began drawing the wildest creature I could possibly imagine. What joy!
