The Weird Thing

I determined this month to start a visual journal again, but I didn’t want to attach any subject to it.  I intend to get better at drawing people and flowers, and at capturing bits of everyday life.  But I also want to start without intentions, just go where my imagination leads.

Today I was recycling a wet wipe dispenser and became fascinated with the shape of the top.


I decided that it looked like some weird little figure, so I decided to draw it.  I got lost in my head and when I came back to my senses, I had this:

My Weird Wonderful Thing

That’s the fun of visual journaling — you never know where it’ll lead — or who it will allow you to blame for your bad habits 🙂
