I never really claim to be able to draw, but I do like to sketch a bit and mess around doodling when inspiration strikes me. And usually when the inspiration strikes, if I don't act immediately on it, I can no longer focus on anything else. Yes, I am obsessive.
This would be an example of said messin' around.
I was supposed to be listening to a lecture on coordinate cumulative sentences, but about half way in I could take it no longer. I had to hit pause and do something minor-ly artist outside of sentence structure or I would have had a brain rupture.
After drawing(but not very well, her eyes are like totally different sizes)for 2 minutes I felt better and was able to resume my studious note taking.
