There is a sympathetic response when looking at a person who is laughing.  

Inundated with current events has lead to a feeling of despair.  In order to combat this overwhelming sense of doom I begin each day by sketching a person laughing.  

The initial feeling is one of joy.  As I delve into the sketch, the image becomes deconstructed and I no longer see a person laughing - it is broken down to shadows, highlights, shapes, perspective... Some of these smaller shapes within the image are hilarious (there's a scrotum where Trump's neck meets his collar, for instance).  

Finding laughs within the laughs is a true delight.

More light into this darkness?  I can only hope.
