Brain Waving: 10 Brain Images 

Dr. Barbara Bachmeier posted about Brain Waves on her blog. It awakens me to a number of Mental Health Humor cartoons I’ve drawn for my own art Therapy to ‘regulate emotion and reduce anxiety’.

The above-Mental Health Humor cartoon series “Brainstorming”  was my own cartoonist conscious awareness of the beginning of a new full-fledged cartoon series stemming from the Mental Health Humor cartoons. The creative mind of mine…finds myself in deep thought… so, I believe I’m in a constant state of hyper-alertness to nothing, but seeing everything.  Yes, if I were to define myself based on the Dr.’s post– I would say, Gamma-Delta-Theta-State! You will have to continue reading… »Read  Dr. Barbara Bachmeier Brain Waves to understand my state.

Before you do that, please check out some of my other Brainstorming cartoons that led up to the series.

Learning about Limbic system lead to this cartoon… “The Primitive” lol – now don’t ask me about the about the Limbic System, I was just setting up his WordPress blog and formatting an easy theme for him to use… Typical Doctor, only updated it 3 times …lol

Cartoonist Chato Stewart Notes:  The series “BrainStorming” had a long birth… First, I had to feel comfortable drawing brain and “giving brains LIFE!” I had a lot of success with the (medication bottle). I drew 15 or more brains doing all sorts or things… giving life to cartoon and naming the series would take a brain-storm. So, Here was the introduction to the series. My fav is the brain with the anchor!
