If you draw something you love over and over you learn more and more about your subject; and you fall deeper in love with it.
If you draw something you don't know or understand over and over again you learn more and more about your subject each time you draw it; and you fall in love with it.*
Drawing is love.
*OK. This doesn't apply to ticks. I've drawn lots of sketches of ticks in an effort to understand them; I haven't thought so far ahead as love—baby steps. I have yet to fall in love with them. I do, however, have a respect, mingled with awe, for them, but this doesn't keep me from dropping them into the rubbing alcohol dish!
