I remember using a lot of ballpoint pens back when I was a kid.

ballpoint pens! Pen art was big with me, it still is. :) All that was needed was your average pen and paper, and i could draw anywhere (mainly behind textbooks at school).

Argh, it's 1:30 am and my brain is dying already.
I meant watercolors, charcoals, and oil paints.

I was a very curious child and started drawing extensively in first grade. Naturally the tools available to me were (in order) pencils, colored pencils, markers and cheap watercolors.

But the mediums that I really explored throughout my life would have to be watercolors, charcoals, and watercolor.

legitimately explored: paper!! cutting paper, I should say. it's fun! although I dabbled with quilting for a while when I was much younger, but that's really my mother's realm :D

I started with watercolors when I was like 6 or 7. Later I tried with oils. Now I'm working with everything that leaves a mark...even food...

I guess technically I would have to answer crayons, but I never drew stick figures with the intent I draw them now, so I guess digital wins (yay MS Paint)

Pencils were and still are my fav. However, finger painting was a big hit for a while there... and water colors, oh dear water colors *dreams off*

Charcoal, my father had them assorted inks and pens. I remember using the charcoal and leaving finger smudges all over the paper, but my dad encouraged me to continue :)

Pencil was the first thing I picked up followed by crayons which I quickly got rid of for colored pencils. :)

I said pencil, but if I think about it, most of the time I used coloured markers as a youngster.
Painting is a new passion that I was reluctant to do, because I've got asthma, and some fumes can be harmful.
Now I paint in the Garage during the summer.
In winter I use sharpies.
Most of my stuff nowadays is made with found or natural material, then photographed, that way I don't have to STORE it.
Sure would be nice to SELL some stuff, like you do.
I just have so much admiration for your fast and confident style. Your liberal use of paint and the texture it gives are really inspiring.
I'd be LYING if I didn't say that I try to emulate your style....unsuccessfully of course.

i think i first used crayons and stuff when i was a little child, but i actually started drawing with pencil.. so i put pencil. it wasn't until like.. 4 or 5 or 6 that i started carrying around a sketchbook and pencil with my little random drawings inside. 95% of the time it was pencil. as i grew up and went to school, i stuck with pencil. i didn't know much about art or anything else, i just liked to draw. honestly, it wasn't until senior year of highschool i started exploring with watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, etc

I started with pencils and markers, but when I learned to draw I started with exploring as much media as my parents where willing to pay for.
