Illustration Friday: Unbalanced

As an artist I found this a challenging topic! How do you illustrate "unbalanced" and maintain an aesthetic sensibility?
So I thought about balance. The tree pose is one of the fundamental balance poses in Yoga. But I also thought about the unbalance of thought. I'm working with how to teach creativity in my graduate degree and I feel constantly unbalanced as I try to reconcile typical academic requirements with creative ones.

The tree position is perfect for balance, and I like the markings and energy that tries to shake the balance..this works well, Heather!! Good luck on your task..it sounds challenging, but you will get through it, I'm sure!

I like the sense of activity in the background against the steadiness of the yoga pose; great contrast. Also, I'm reminded that I need to work on my own tree pose...
