There are a few things that make me happy on a daily basis:
1) Eating chocolate
2) Eating crazy massive amounts of vegetables
(sometimes I seriously wonder how my stomach is able to obliterate that much roughage at one time...)
3) Drinking cup after cup after cup of tea (and peeing? A lot? I once had someone very astutely say to me, "is there a time when you're not either drinking or peeing?" Aaaand the answer is...no...not really.)
4) Being a mad-scientist cook, concocting unrecreatable dishes of all kinds
5) Drinking wine (while concoting the dishes, of course. I swear this is NOT the reason why I can never make them again. REALLY!)
6) ...I guess I like consuming things?
7) Lifting mad weights (prepping my body for heavy consumption)
8) Going grocery shopping!!!!
9) Seeing little animals and plants doing their thang <3 <3 <3
10) Making art! Compulsively.
So yeah. There you have it! My brilliant recipe for daily happiness: make lots and eat lots. I guess that makes sense.
I try really hard to draw, or at least do something creative every day, but it's tough to squeeze it in sometimes. I truly believe that the more you make, the more ideas you get for future projects. It all feeds off of itself. As Dr. Pizza once said, "the more you pump, the more it flows" (likening the creative process to breastfeeding.) Yes indeed. That's why I'm beginning a "daily doodle" project, where I make and post something new each day-- even if it is quick, small, and a really terrible drawing. I've got to post it, that's the rule!
In my mind, a "doodle" can be anything: a drawing, a digital illustration, an animation, a collage, a photo, a cake...you get the idea. I'm just calling it a "doodle" because it's an easy name, and it captures the idea of a creative little happening, whatever it may be!
You can check out my progress (and keep me accountable!) on my Daily Doodle page :) I'm very excited to see this gallery grow!
