Art Therapy....good for the soul

This past week has been a rough one on me and my family. I've felt pretty helpless watching my brother go through everything he is right now. As I've been spending time with him and at my home I have really been thinking about things of importance in my life. My project that I am currently working on in this class has been on my mind a lot since each square represents a significant event or thing in my life. It seems pretty ironic to me I am currently working on this project while all these things have been going on. I also have been drawing in my sketch book a lot more than usual. It hasn't been any certain thing but lately I've been finding I spend a lot of my day with ear buds in and pencil to pad. Maybe art therapy really does cure the soul or helps us get from one place to the next?

I have been giving a lot of thought in regards to our first project. I want to find a way to correlate things of significance into my work especially things that affect my life. My family keeps coming to mind and would like to find a way to represent them. Also my team keeps popping up in my head which I guess could be considered my second family. I've been looking up different hyperbolic shapes for inspiration.
