I drew a lot of stick figures this week. I like drawing little stick people, and sometimes I feel like I capture more of how I feel in a stick person than I do when I draw myself. There’s something really freeing in just breaking it down to the simplest parts of drawing a person. I focus less on getting the details right and more on poses and expression. It’s not necessarily faster as a process, but it’s really enjoyable for me as an artist.

I tired a lot. And I read other people’s posts on different social media sites and realized we’re all really tired. Some people were kind enough to share their specific tiredness so I could draw it out with my stick people. Oddly enough, drawing what is exhausting was very energizing for me. But I sensed people were tired of talking about what made them tired, so next week I’ll focus on something else. 😀
