I was so busy at work today that I literally had no time to draw. I'm not one to misuse the word "literally" so please understand that I literally mean that I literally had no free time today with which to draw. By the time I got home I was feeling so acrimonious that all I wanted to do was find that aforementioned cave to hide in but I had to draw... I'm sixteen days away from a solid year for this blog and there's no way I was going to let a little crotchety mood stop me.
Beginning on Thursday, I'm teaching a drawing class at the retirement community where I work. I took a few of the objects we'll be drawing and set them up in my office. I decided that of all the music in my Grooveshark playlist, Radiohead was the moodiest (and therefore the most suited to my state of mind) so I put that on and set to work.
As it turns out, Radiohead makes me crankier when I'm already cranky... good to know.
I'm in the kind of mood where I was mad at my 2H pencil for not being a soft enough grade of graphite but yet feeling spiteful enough that I didn't seek out a softer pencil just on principle. The result of all of this nonsense is pictured below.
Have I mentioned I'll be on vacation in four days? It's about &$%@! time, too.
I also neglected to mention that someone racked up several thousand dollars worth of charges on our credit card today. Thankfully, it's been rectified. Thanks a lot, anonymous jerk. I send many a colorful word and rude gesture in your general direction.
