Kawaii may have covered this some time ago… I'm not sure. But I want to talk about it now!
In a crunch or just to get going, you often need a bit of an energy boost or even just something to get you into your comfort zone in order to get the creative juices flowing…
This stuff is VERY individual, it's not a one size fits all thing by any means. Things like wine can be good for busting through blocks and coffee or energy drinks can get you going and KEEP you going, do you favour those?
Personally I stay away from stimulants like that because they develop their own sort of dependence.
When I'm in a real crunch the comfort food I go for is usually plain salty chips. My fave brand is Kettle because they're not too oily, while being very crunchy and crisp! MMmm, deliciously unhealthy!
My regular comfort zone nibble fuel is Vita Wheat biscuits with Vegemite and margarine on them, accompanied by a cup of tea. This is all very Australian stuff I might add. Sometimes I'll have a nice sweet biccy as well, usually butternut snap, Anzac, shortbread, or gingerbread. This is wonderful comfort food!
I used to gobble lollies (Candy to you North Americans), things like caramels, marshmallows, jelly snakes, chocolate etc, but it's not too healthy.
Conversely, for a while I had nothing but carrots, but that turned EVERYTHING orange. XD
All of this helps me get in the creative mood and ready for some heavy comicing!
Tell me what your drawing fuel is!??
