Draw to Think

Drawing, like writing, is a method for thinking.

Sometimes I put my pen down on paper and let my hand make lines and shapes. My subconscious takes over until I realize what I've done. Suddenly my logical brain flicks into action, assesses what it is I've created, and is surprised to see an illustration that I can assign meaning to.

So many of us believe that we are not imaginative—that we have no creative ideas—and yet when we let the body do the work without our autocorrecting minds, magic happens.

Try drawing. See where it takes you.
