Rough Days Call For Doodles In My Sketchbook

Everyone has hard days, and today was particularly rough for me. It’s nothing I can’t get over, of course, but the best way for me to cope is to lock myself in a room and draw it out. It’s like therapy.

I think I’ve been like that my whole life. Walking helps and so does talking about it, but nothing works better than doodling in my sketchbook. It doesn’t matter what I draw or what medium I use. The drawing really doesn’t even have to make sense (much like this one). It’s really about the emotion that comes out in it.

Give it a shot sometime. You might be surprised how effective it is, even if doodling was never really your thing.

Why I Love Art

the best art quote
In a few simple words, this is why I love art. Somehow, getting lost in your own work allows you time to think and become things you never imagined. Join us in the #onething project on Google+ and create something (anything) new every day. Use the hashtag! There are so many opportunities to create and to find yourself… or lose yourself. Whichever you prefer.
