“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
― Thomas Merton,
Yesterday, I told you that recently, I’ve been expressing my thoughts through sketching and doodling. I’ve been flipping through how-to books and watching YouTube tutorials on drawing cartoon figures and the very act of drawing is a stress release but it also inspires me to be more creative in other aspects of my life. I draw a character and then I start to think about her life and before you know it, I have a story to write.
I sketched this little doll while watching a tutorial yesterday and while I brushed over some watercolor, it made me think about how we can hide our identity behind costumes. Today, I am writing that story.
What about you? How does art affect you?Other than the blog, I’m on: Amazon, YouTube, Tumblr, Bloglovin, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter
