Getting back into the groove of things, as I’m coming towards the end of my UI/UX design studies (though it never stops!). In my off time when I’ve been tired of staring down a design or strategy problem, I’ve been trying to divert my attention into something like sketching to allow my thoughts to pause for a bit.
I’ve also used the sketching as a way to avoid dwelling on chronic headache pain. As the pain sets in, it’s easy to get frustrated and distracted. While it is certainly frustrating, I’ve been experimenting with that diversion of thought (taking from my meditation practice) and attempting to “meditate” on my sketching. I’m sharing one of those pieces today, where I’ve been exploring a hatching style but trying to do my own thing with the implementation.
