I did this quick sketch during a break from work at my local cafe. It was a gorgeous sunny day and I have been cooped up in the house for far too long. I finished the sketch before I finished a nice glass of chai latte. I entered this to Art Jumble Blog theme of the week which is "Fail". I have been watching a lot of Master Chef and I thought it would be a bit of fun to draw this. This was hand drawn and hand inked then coloured in photoshop.
It's important to be able to do your own stuff while doing work I feel. I get all depressed and angsty and I find that my jobs do suffer because of it. I had a tough week all of last week and earlier this week. I got sick and my confidence took a beating at work and I am very hard on myself too which doesn't help and I spent most of last week just working and nothing else and it really messes with my head space. I started feeling like I shouldn't even be doing this, I should be much better than what I am and what I have I done in my life. Then I went off and drew something for me and you just realize that as long as I keep doing this I will get better. Practice makes perfect and there really is no point comparing myself to someone else...best to just knuckle down and find where the mistakes are and try harder. Ultimately....I do what I do because I love it. I love creating and improving, the competitiveness and I love the people I work with. So, hoping that I can do better tomorrow!
