From the time I was old enough to pick up a pencil, all I wanted to do was collect and horde art supplies.
My obsession began with the forever craved & coveted Crayola Crayon 64 pack - with the sharpener on the back.(We all know it was THEE item of your childhood hopes & dreams... no one's fooling anyone here!)
Once obtained, I fell in love. There were so many colors and wacky names to choose from - it was sensory overload in the absolute best way.
Then came the drawings. I was always SO annoyed that my drawings didn't look the way I thought they should. Instead of creating my own work, I would go around begging every adult in my family to draw me a picture so I could color it.
One of most frequent requests was for my aunt (an actual artist) to draw me the outline of "Free Willy" (literally the whale from Free Willy ya'll) so I could color it. I wanted to color a black and white whale... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
