Most of the time I like my job, but today - well today scrubbing out toilets would have been wayyyyyyy more preferable.
Human nature never ceases to amaze me and the ability to let something like work overpower your sense and sensibility. Today it felt like a frustrating spiral, surrounded by people, many of whom I have known for a very long time who suddenly felt like strangers. I participated but felt as if I was on the perimeter looking at the proceedings wondering what in hell's name we were all doing.
Its just as well I have my art, as I believe its one of the things in life that keeps me sane. Or at least partially sane anyway. I forged ahead with the vulture last night without even thinking about stopping for updates then realized that I hadn't done any. Oops. I find it difficult to create progress pieces and tutorials as the 'stop and photograph' is a real intrusion on the drawing. I have to consciously make myself stop and take an image. If I get into 'the zone', well the imaging just won't happen as I get too selfish and involved in the drawing aspect.
So now time to kick back and relax a little and do some more work on pretty boy, the vulture. I will have to find out exactly what kind he is so I can give him the appropriate title. (I found out, he's an Eurasian Black Vulture) Tomorrow I'll be working til 9 or 10pm so there likely won't be an update. Unless I quit before then.
