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.
