Illustration Friday: Tension

Is it tension or is it migraine? Who knows?

However, it seems a lot of people like to announce the fact that they have a headache on Facebook. Maybe there is a strong need for attention and sympathy. Again, who knows?

Not that I am without empathy. I suffer from migraines from time to time. But my solution isn't getting on my computer to share with the world my sufferings while further irritating my throbbing head. Nope! I pop my medication, head to the darkest room in the house, put a pillow over my head, and whimper like a baby until the pain subsides.

Ah, anyway! This illustration was created with pen and ink, and digitally enhanced with Photoshop.

Oh man you're totally right sometimes it would be better to just shut it off and walk away.

That is also how I deal with my occasional migraine. Too bad more Facebookers don't take to pen and ink to discuss their tension and headaches instead of whining about it on the internet.

Very evocative drawing.
