''i can't draw''   ...   random thoughts

When people say, "I can't draw", what they mean is "I can't draw the images in my head so that they look in physical form the way they looked in my head."

It's quite possible to create good and interesting images (by drawing or various other physical or software-based tools) without the end result being the same as what was in your head. In which case I might argue that it's not really true that you can't draw. It just depends on what the end result is intended for, and whether in that context it really matters that it look the way it looks in your head...
