Strange Inspiration

Was in various levels of funk late last week and all weekend, with the nadir being last night and this morning. Lack of sleep, work being annoying, stress and nuisance about the cats, etc. all conspired to make me retreat into LotRO, but when last night even that got more frustrating than fun, I had nowhere to escape to and had to admit that I felt like crap. (I also didn't get anything like the amount of drawing done that I wanted to over the weekend, for largely the same reasons.)

So this morning, in an attempt to break out of the tailspin, I cranked up the bouncy music playlist (including Uncle John, referenced in my last post) and more-or-less unconsciously went back and re-read The Suburban Jungle for the past year or so. (I say unconsciously because I started out just wanting to look at last week, then twenty minutes later realized I'd been clicking the "previous week" link over and over.) What I found is that there is some stuff in there that I am actually quite proud of, which was an odd sensation. :) I'm so used to feeling like I have to apologize for my art that when I come upon some that I actually like months later, it's always a welcome surprise.

By the time I was through with that, I buzzed around ArtSpots some, and picked up a bit more inspiration; now I'm all "ImaWannaDRAW!!!" I won't be able to do much more than a sketch over lunch until I get home, of course, but if I can hold onto this energy, maybe I can catch up tonight and make up for a wasted weekend. :) Let's hope!
