I've had a migraine since Tuesday evening. It's finally gone this morning. I was contemplating drawing a zentangle of what a migraine looks and feels like....maybe a hard concept, but I was seeing sharp spikey lines and zig-zag shapes and circles that keep turning and shifting. I get aura sometimes with my migraines - I usually see a small circular shiny sawblade shape that spins and gradually gets bigger and bigger until I can't see what I'm looking straight at; but I can see periphally. It makes it hard to sit at the computer and try to sneak up on whatever you are working on. Anyways, I was thinking these thoughts while at my desk when it dawned on me that I still had a sizable gift certificate to Blaine's Art Store and what a lovely way to spend my lunch break. So I went, I saw and I bought a couple of sketchbooks and some new pens.
I decided that I wanted a sketchbook that would be solely for zentangles. I don't know why, but it seemed important at noon yesterday. So this is what I bought and this is how I decorated the front. I love green and gold together! The front is NOT my migraine, it is much more soothing. The next time I have a migraine I'll zentangle it and we'll see how it fits!
