Drawing For The Sake Of Staying Sane

Does every single art journal page have to be important and meaningful? Do you need to tell a special story? Does the subject have to contain a certain memory or value?
My answer to all of these questions is: NO.
It would give so much pressure, to make each page full of value, starting out with a concept and working towards a certain, desired end result. No surprises, just sort of an assignment. While drawing is just playing - it's not an assignment or obligation.

There is nothing wrong with drawing mondaine things. They are there, they are part of your life. They are worth sketching. And therefore, I believe each drawing you make already IS meaningful, whether you intend it to be or not.

Sometimes you just need to draw to stay sane. To have fun. And that, in my humble opinion, is most important.
