I’ve just finished “The English Teacher’s meeting” segment in my comics.
There is one more segment to finish before publishing the comics.
The English teachers in my comics are as dysfunctional as their students;
they are self-absorbed, strike any food they spot around and don’t listen to each other. I just love them!
It’s always a magnificent feeling to finish a segment, although it comes with some reduction in stamina. You sit at your lovely desk; your creative juices are all pumped up; you are in the zone … and all of a sudden, it’s done. FIN. To sustain this great feeling, you naturally start working on another creative assignment.
I haven’t found any research done on what happens to your brain when you create comics. Could be fun to conduct such research one day.
When you exercise, for instance, your brain releases a protein called BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor). This BDNF has a protective and also reparative element to your memory neurons and acts as a reset switch. That’s why we often feel so at ease and things are clear after exercising.
When creating comics the feeling of joy and ease comes during work; you don’t need to wait until you are done. I see every moment of the day how the crazy creatures that were harbored in my mind come to life under my pencil, and if this is not a stress reduction tool, I don’t know what is.
I have the feeling that the reading process of comics is also a profound remedy, yet to be discovered by the medical authority. This window to a fantastic world of escapade mixed with healthy laughs and reflection on your own existence is the right recipe for eternal joy. Lol
