Drawing is wonderful for pain management!

You know, I'm dreading winter. If I'm flaring like this when the weather starts changing, I'm in for it. But hey, maybe this will be the winter that doesn't hurt me as much, right?

In the meantime, I've been doing lots of drawing and doodling. The above image is a background I painted, but the text was done in Photoshop. I have some more images too... enjoy!

Be aware, this is graphics-intensive. The images are optimized to load quickly, but there's still a ton of them.

These aren't terribly creative, but they were soothing to do. I get lost in the motion of pen on paper.  It's definitely worth trying if you deal with chronic pain.

If you've lasted through all these photos, you have my sincere thanks. If you're interested in learning some of these patterns, check out Zentangling. It's a process that breaks down complex-looking patterns into simple, repeatable processes.

Thanks for reading, and I'll see ya next time!

Life can be a pain in the butt, but it's better than the alternative.

  1. Heehee...I'm not sure why, but that "Poof." has me giggling like a loon. And that wonderfully decorated "blah"! quonking birduck? ;)

    *gentle hugs* This weather's totally insane, I keep flaring up too when I shouldn't be. Fibro sucks!
