Day 279

I really like the doodle quality of today's self-portrait. It reminds me of the kind of art a person makes when they are aimlessly making marks while their mind is occupied with something else. In fact, I find it extremely interesting how the drawings a person makes in those situations can fairly accurately portray their emotional state.

In this case, however, I was consciously focusing on this drawing so I was aware of what I was doing. On the other hand, the swirls are pretty light-hearted, so they technically create a good representation of my mindset at the time...
