I am writing my resume, I do average pencil drawing & documenting tags like "developer", "photographer". In this way I want to tag as "pencil drawing artist" please help with phrase this in a better way.

    Well, if you do "average" pencil drawing then I guess you're a mediocre artist.

  • You’d should call yourself a pencil artist. A sketch artist is one typically employed by the police to render an image of a suspect from a witness’s verbal description.

    just a piece of advice - don't call yourself average on your own resume. Find a way to be honest but effective.

1 Answer 1


You could be a sketcher.

A sketch is:

a simply or hastily executed drawing or painting, especially a preliminary one, giving the essential features without the details.

(Note: do not use "sketchy", as it has a negative connotation, implying incomplete or insufficient - emphasizing the "hastily executed" and "without the details" parts.)
