Good Friday

Today is Good Friday.  Doing a simple doodle  help me concentrate in the main reason for this day. It soothes my mind, and allows the events of this celebration to be fresh in my memory while I draw them.

HolyFriday
Today  we commemorate the death of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. He sacrificed himself so our sins may be forgiven and through his merits we may be saved.

Check These Graphic Artists

There are a bunch of artists that I really enjoy watching draw. I learn from their skills and since “copying” is the highest way of flattery. In a way that is what artists have done for many centuries, learn from each other.

I highly recommend to subscribe to Mary Doodles channels in youtube. She is a very talented cartoonist artist . Check out the video below

Another graphic artist from whom I love to learn is: Jo Ann Fink. I love to re create her tangled doodles. Check out her videos

Just like when we sleep, our neurons  get a bubble bath .

brain_sleep-awaken(See this TED talk  –if you can’t watch the whole 10 mins,then  scroll to minute 7:14– to see the difference of liquid received to wash toxins out from the brain while sleeping–left red substance– Vs when we are awaken on the right green substance)

In a similar way, when we doodle we enter in a relaxed mood that allow our thoughts to unwind.house-small

 

No matter if it is a a little doodle  or an elaborate one. Draw every day.
It will get you into the routine to get in touch with your thoughts.

When we doodle or draw, we liberate our minds of whatever problems are stressing them.

So, why not take paper and  pencil and try a simple doodle.
