to feel the letters
…letters are everywhere, they create words, sentences and… messages…
Sometimes a simple starting point can initiate the exploration.
An understanding and a feeling for how letterforms are constructed.
I love how good it feels sometimes to just trust the process and create instead of overthinking every step. Especially using real physical materials that are used less and less in this digital era. It works as a meditation and art therapy.
When one decision leads to another and there is no draining decision-making left. It just frees the headspace and boosts creativity.
I even noticed that drawing helps to calm down before the night and have better sleep than if I would be watching something on the screen before the bed.

There are two things that make me absolutely lose the track of the time: creating, especially analogue art, and cooking. Okay, social media can be tricky and make you completely forget that time exists, but I do not think it counts.
And as I said, letters are everywhere.
