On Sundays, people can typically find Brittany Long Olsen listening to podcasts with some kind of drawing utensil in hand, channeling her inner creative energy as she journals.

"My best time to draw is Sundays," Olsen said.

Olsen uses this day to draw comics about her life in a visual journal, and this practice has now turned into two published graphic novels. The latest, titled, "Comic Diaries Volume 1," was released late last year.

"I work from home so my desk is my work spot, so when I'm doing creative projects I like to sit anywhere else so I can channel my creative energy," said Olsen, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
