Do you remember a time when you readily grabbed a pencil, pen or crayon and took to drawing something? Chances are it was way back in your childhood and the memory is as feint as the lined paper you were drawing on. If you can recall those moments, you will probably remember the feeling of excitement, intent focus and creativity coursing through your veins. And that’s where my story begins.
I didn’t do a lot of drawing in my childhood, but I came back to it later in life (mid 20’s), when I discovered, to my surprise, that it was a lot of fun drawing on people! Picture the scene: I’m teaching a group of eighteen students musculoskeletal anatomy for Sports Massage Therapy. Lots of faces contorting in mental ‘anguish’ as they tried to cram another muscle origin, insertion or bony landmark into their already overloaded brains.
