At this point in my art career I have deep need inside of me to actualize my potential and create constantly.

But I’m feeling limited by time, my materials and my body.

This is a drawing of me, working my butt off on a drawing while my soul cries out with caged energy relentlessly striving to break free, to do more, to accomplish more, to express.

As Much Time as I Can

I’m trying to put as much time as I can towards this self portrait but today was a bit of a challenge due to other commitments taking up my time.

I didn’t want to stop drawing today, my motivation is relentless and I feel that I have unlimited energy to finish this self portrait.
