I'm drawing a line. On one side is this girl who spent over a year without any creative expression. On the other side is the new me: jumpstarting my creativity by doing a 15 minute drawing a day. I consider these drawings pump primers. They are not the goal, but are the pathway to a more creative life.

I hope this  makes you laugh a little.  It made me laugh.

Who says my drawings always have to be serious?
Again, I waited until the end of the day to do the drawing, and it felt different.  I was tired, but I was relaxed, too, so I wasn't rushing.  As soon as the amoeba form appeared, I felt powerless to stop it.  But I didn't want to stop it, either.  Perhaps taking these drawings a little less seriously is something I should remember to do every once in a while.
Even tho this seems a little cartoonish, I was pleased with the drawing.  That is not something I thought I would shoot for; I thought the process was always going to be the important part.  But feeling ambivalent about the drawings day after day was sorta sapping the life out of the project for me.  So this one is an antidote for that feeling, and if you think it's silly, too bad.  I do, too, but I like silly.


  1. It is so difficult to unhinge the brain and its judgement from the doing.

  2. I like the way how you left the space.
