Episode 421 Whiny

Episode 421 of the CMP, a Creativity Matters Podcast — I’m feeling a bit whiny, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t draw…. in fact, drawing is one of the few things that is keeping me calm

In this episode of the CMP,  the whiny days are sometimes the days I most benefit from drawing. The drawing slows me down, settles my breathing, quiets my hand and head. Whiny days happen, and rants like “the Universe hates me” aren’t unfamiliar in my house. (To be fair, I note that “the Universe speaks to me” with some regularity, too….. and I try and listen when that happens.) We laugh, and then we go on, one foot in front of the other.

Personal strength is something you see as difficult days mount up, crescendo, and threaten to overwhelm. The days may unfold or they may tumble in an avalanche, and only as you stand in the face of the spillage do you really see your own inner core and resolve. You have this within you.

But it doesn’t mean you might not also be whiny.

Draw Along Timed Drawing

The drawing I started while recording this show was this inspiration pick from Sktchy.

The little boy inspiration pick I mentioned is this one. I drew it a day or so later and really enjoyed the process and the challenge.
