You know how it goes. You think you're doing plenty. And then you realise that you haven't been drawing in ages. And it shows. And then you understand why you've been feeling. What? Off your game? Flat? Not right? And you wonder how it happened. Yes, life is busy. Bills have to be paid. (Just got our Laya health insurance bill, by the way, and couldn't believe how expensive it was. I must ring them on Monday and discuss plans.) Laundry has to be done. Dog has to be walked. Cat has to be injected. (And his litter tray has to be cleaned up - constantly - despite the regular insulin routine, he still drinks too much, and pees day and night. ) But drawing for 15 minutes a day should be possible. A matter of time management? Priorities? And where to fit yoga and meditation then?

Doesn't even look like me! And proportions are all over the place.
Thankfully, does look like my cat!
The only solution of course is to pick up a pen and a sketchbook and draw what's there. The cat. Me. The dog (if he didn't move so much). And pick myself up, one drawing at a time. Be warned. Some of these are not very good. And some are absolutely awful!

Interestingly enough, there is actually a resemblance here.
No resemblance here. Whatsoever.
A completely generic face. Must try harder.


  1. I’ve been the same for the past couple of weeks - think my mind has gone into hibernation! Will have to pull my socks up tomorrow, have a commission to finish for Christmas, so I better get started... I like your little drawings, don’t be too hard on yourself :-)

    1. Thanks Emma! I know it happens to all of us every so often. Congratulations on the commission!
