It is easier to get away with bad drawing and good writing than vice versa. Indeed cartoons like Dilbert are drawn very simply or the webcomic xkcd uses just stick people. It's tempting to say (like some modern art) my nearly-four year old could draw that without realising there is a skill in saying more than less and I often have to resist making my work too arty. No rather than Drawing I would be better working on my English. So I'm covering up my questionable drawing with lots of English to make up for it.
* I write this with the words of one of my English teachers ringing in my ears pulling me up for using the word posh. I received a lecture on the origins of this phrase from cruise liners apparently it stands for Port Out, Starboard Home which the upper classes preferred as that was where the shade was as the sailed to India. My English teachers used to like my creativity but dispair at my speling and grandma.
