I did this illustration during an eight week post-op recovery period. I mention this because, sitting still on bed rest was about to make me lose my mind. I did so much reading and watching Netflix I no longer felt human (don't get me wrong, I love to read). I needed to do something to sooth my well being-I needed to think creatively again. This piece was done in color pencil and pen/ink, mediums I could use without the mess, sitting up in bed. I swear this helped ease the pain and brought me back to myself. I guess my point is that creating is therapeutic.
