I’m awake super early and getting my art done before surgery.
I have my second surgery on my ear today. The first one didn’t quite fix my hearing but I’m confident that this one will do the trick. But, I MUST get my art time in every day so I showed up early and got it done before the rest of my day was blown up.
On days like this I like to fall back to simple charcoal on newsprint and a photograph of a figure. Thank you NMA for all the awesome reference photos.
The gesture study has lots of issues but I’m okay with that. Mistakes are part of this great game! Plus I know that if I wanted to take this drawing to a much more accurate finish all it would take is more time. I only spent 30 minutes on it this morning.
What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!
Got my art time in before surgery!
What needs work? What did you learn?
Rest up the rest of the day and get back to my regular day as soon as I can.
How am I going to Optimize moving forward?
Focus on micro wins through the day. Protect my energy.
Is a new project I’m starting with Josh Johnson where we are…
