I spent Sunday (the top 2) reading and drawing from Tank Girl 'Visions of Booga'. Also one of my 'draw a hand a day' and 'draw a face a day' that I started recently.
And then on Monday I drew from this months Dazed and Confused and another little bit of Tank Girl.

When I only do sketchbook stuff I always feel like I've been a bit naughty and not doing any 'proper' work but it's all practise, the more I draw the better the 'proper' work will be and I've always had trouble with how I should draw people, it's never come as naturally as drawing other things so that's what I'm concentrating on at the minute and I think it's working.
I've had a lot more ideas and thoughts of things I could do while I've been just sketchbooking than I do when I just try and get on with 'proper' stuff too which can only be a good thing.

It's silly, I don't know why I feel like I have to justify drawing, it's what I'm planning on doing for the rest of my life whether it's in a sketchbook or not. I think it has something to with the fact that I enjoy it so much and it's so ingrained in me that jobs are horrible and no one enjoys their job but what I'm going to do for a living is something I enjoy and that shouldn't make me feel guilty.

Anyway, thoughts over. I'm going to go google what a twitchy eyelid means because it's been driving me crazy for the last 10 minutes and google might come up with something ridiculously funny.


p.s. Visions of Booga was drawn by Rufus Dayglo. You should check him out.
