This drawing has made a bad day better.
I wake up feeling terribly tired for some reason. I’m supposed to be going to a full-day life drawing session, but I just can’t face it. Instead I go back to bed for a few hours.
When I wake up again, I weigh myself. First time after Christmas. Then I wish I hadn’t bothered.
My weight has crept up to its highest point in over 2 years. This might not be a problem for many people – it’s post-Christmas after all. But this weight gain is happening without a change in my eating habits, and I used to be much bigger than made me comfortable. I do not want to go there again.
So now I am feeling ill and feeling depressed.
I go back to sleep.
So what about the drawing? Well, first I love the colour scheme. But also, this was a drawing that went horribly wrong at first. I made my chin much too long and was about to give up. But then I thought of all you, and realized I have to post something, so I kept going. I fixed the chin (you can still see the errant lines) and I actually wound up with a drawing that probably looks more like me than any of my others.
So at least something good came out of today.
