When I don't have much time for large projects, I draw. And I always use the figure in some way. I wonder what motivates us, why we do what we do, and what makes us tick. My ideas usually come from what's going on inside of us. I'm not interested in what we look like but am intrigued by where we are relative to each other and the ways in which that can be shown. In the Venn Diagram image YOU are in the middle and the people in your life appear around you. It can be a tricky tool; just when you thought you were pretty close to a sibling you realize that they're way out on the furthest circle from you.
The quadrant image called "Relations" is intended to show how spatial distance and slight shifts in body position can give us a lot of information about what's going on between the two people.
