I love this episode of The Art Assignment on PBS about the value of creating imaginary friends as an adult. Plus JooYoung is inspiring on many, many levels.
"Larry likes to eat bad feelings." JooYoung was seeing feelings of hopelessness in her friends and wanted to do something to combat them. Which led to Bernadette. "Who is a fabulous dancer." "And reads through her nose."
Well, you can watch and see how she works with her creations, and then she gives an assignment for you to create your own imaginary friend.
