My figure drawing for today symbolizes my aspiration to draw well and become a successful artist. It also symbolizes my desire to do "great things" and not be just a drudge. In my younger days, and in school, you were never supposed to voice sentiments like these, because they were "vulgar" and "naive." And figures were not supposed to "act" or be a symbol for anything, which would be considered an embarrassing throwback to the moralizing narrative or allegorical art of the 19th century.
