Long post, lots of pictures…sorry
So this is something I did a while back but I thought it would be fun to share here!
When I get bored/stressed/anxious, I doodle. It’s therapeutic for me, and often times allows me to take a breather from whatever is getting at me in the moment.
My job is one of those those things that gets at me.
About a year ago, I was trying to doodle to take the edge off the drama at work. But try as I might, I couldn’t doodle anything. I was so bent out of shape that I couldn’t even make a simple mark with my pencil on the sticky notes in front of me. My old friend Mr. Artist’s Block was just sitting back and eating popcorn with his feet propped up watching the show!
Luckily, inspiration doesn’t always have to come from within!
I posted on Facebook asking for things to draw. And here are the results!!
PARACHUTING MEDIC COBRA
