When I'm feeling overwhelmed I doodle. For me it's a wonderful stress reliever; a mindless creative activity that brings me a lot of joy. Because they're so much fun to do I usually take it further by scanning them in, cleaning them up and adding color (that's how the Crowns of Color series started out — as little doodles).
I like to doodle names, patterns and lyrics and terms from pop culture (you can see more of them on Instagram). Doodling is a great way to distract me from any worries.
What about you? What is your creative distraction?
