Insomnia Art

I had insomnia last night so this was the result. I didn't have my usual faber-castel black pitt pens nearby so this was drawn with a Pilot PreciseV7 pen in a moleskine WC journal .  I used a charcoal brush pen for the darker areas. I really had fun doing this, I ended up going back to bed and did get some sleep after all. If you ever can't sleep maybe doing a little art is just what you need.


  1. Great insomnia art work Kate. I do this a lot when I can't seem to sleep. It lulls you to sleep after awhile.
    Hugs and blessings.

  2. I like your insomnia art Kate...and what a great remedy for insomnia--I would never have thought of it. This looks different from what you usually do and I wonder if this is the case with all of us. Well, soon I will have my studio organized so I'll see :) xoO

  3. See, insomnia isn't so bad after all! You made some cool art because of it.

    Now when I find myself wide awake and unable to sleep I'll just grab a pen and start doodling.

  4. Another use for the creative mind - sleeping pill. I can never get out of bed in the mornings - but if I have a creative idea brewing - boy then out at the crack of dawn.

  5. Love it!
    I seem to be more creative when everything is quiet.
    Great idea... will need to keep a journal handy by my nightstand :]
