Because I have always been a sculptor at heart, I would prefer to pick up clay over a pencil any day! Of course, the sly trick (or crutch, as it may be) that I've relied upon in sculpting, is the fact that when you're working in 3-D. . .the perspective takes care of itself.
So, a low relief sculpture seemed to be a good compromise. I get to play with clay and it's a whole lot easier to repeatedly erase things without worrying about tearing up the paper!
I'm a long way from being finished with this, but it's empowering to confront something that I've been avoiding. It's difficult to be a complete artist when the mere mention of certain subject matter makes your anxiety level jump up a notch. The only solution is to jump in with both feet and do it until it doesn't bother you any more. Next up on my list of things I avoid sculpting or drawing. . .People. . .
