Sometimes things just wind me up, upset me or just get me stressed and unfortunately I seem to be more sensitive at the moment with so much going on, but when things get me down I just have to step away, take stock of the situation and calm down. I find the best way to get rid of my stress, frustration and tears used to be taking it out on a volleyball but now my injuries have prevented that I turn to my sketchbook, so this is the sketch that removed me from things for a few minutes and even though it’s not my best sketch it took me back to happy times seeing REM at Old Trafford in 2008 before bringing me back down to earth and reality, feeling a little happier.

I would recommend that the next time you’re feeling a little sad pick up a pen and let it take you away for a while.
