I’m having a down day. I’m sure there are many reasons, it’s a grey day, I haven’t slept well for a few nights…
Days like these, I stay in my pajamas and keep busy. I’ll work on my knitting, play the piano, or organize my closets. Anything that isn’t sitting and ruminating.
Today I decided to draw it out. I used Photoshop CS5, my fancy Cintiq, and worked in silence. Soon I was in the zone where thoughts are quiet and it’s just drawing.
So here is my sad self-portrait. Not surprising, I felt a lot better as I worked on it. By the end, I felt practically happy.
What do you do when you are having a down day and want to feel better?
