Thanks to Thanksgiving, I had an opportunity to see my family in Turkey, although one week was not adequate. While staying in my old room, I shuffled through my old sketches and I found one of them which encouraged me to persist with my work. This is due to the fact that, during summer vacation, while preparing for drawing exams, I usually went to an art studio. It is hard to maintain your concentration when your friends are living it up at the beach. This sketch is from the art studio. This is actually, where I first learned drawing. It was surprising that after 2 years of studying there, I went almost every summer while being in Turkey as I wanted to hone my lines, and, of course, my future.
