What is the best way to make a drawing that can be used in a real life drawing and what do I need to work towards?
I know I’m asking for a lot but this is important. I know I’m asking a lot from you but please give me time to answer.
Thank you so much, you all rock.
What a great opportunity to be around people that really care. I’ve seen that in my life. People I meet on the road or in a hotel bar can’t give you a straight answer when it comes to the direction that you are moving in, but I feel like, for those people, it’s not going to be something that affects them in the slightest way.

As an example, consider two situations, each from a different perspective. In the first case—this one featuring
