Secretly photocopying your ass at the Office, can reduce mental illness!

Just give me the %$!!@ research money, already!


The drawing process looks like it involves a high level of planning ahead, concentration and sitting still for long periods, so it might suit some patients.

Psychiatrists decades ago used to do handwriting tests to see if the meds were at an optimal dose. When optimal then patients’ handwriting would suddenly go from the previous messy state to neat and tidy. Again, sounds like it might be a simple worthwhile test.


Hello, everyone! Drawing is very calming, helps to concentrate, and can even become a meditative exercise for some.
